World-famous Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest and most renowned game reserves, spanning some 4.8 million acres and sheltering more species of large mammals than any other sanctuary on the African continent.
No trip to South Africa is complete without a safari to uncover the wildlife of this extraordinarily diverse ecosystem. Whilst the park itself is amazing, the most exclusive gameviewing opportunities can be found in private game reserves adjacent to Kruger.
The private reserves we offer such as the leopard-rich Sabi Sands share unfenced boundaries with Kruger, allowing game to move across the landscape freely. Lodges on these reserves often have sole access to various sectors or share traversing rights with just one or two other properties, ensuring there is never a “queue to view”.
Another key feature of private reserves is that they often allow guests to participate in activities not permitted within national parks such as guided walks, off-road driving and night-time game drives – all things well worth doing whilst on safari. The lodges we feature in this region have been chosen for their high standards of accommodation, fantastic locations and their exceptional standards of guiding. Many also have private airstrips, so you can spend less time travelling and more hours in the wilderness.
