Kruger National Park Activities

While enjoying unforgettable safari tours in the Kruger National Park, you may at some point want to take some time off to enjoy some other activities within the area. The Kruger National Park offers a host of great activities for you to try, let’s take a look at some of the most popular choices:

Mountain- Bike Trails

Swapping four wheels for two may be a wise choice. The most prestigious trails can be found at Olifants Camp where you will be supplied with all the equipment you need. Different trails are available depending on your skill and fitness level.

Guided Bush Walk

Nothing will put you in the heart of an African adventure quite like walking in The Kruger National Park.You will walk with experienced guides. The aim of the walk is to learn and appreciate the intricate details of the nature surrounding you. Once your senses have been activated, you will be able to tune into all the sights, sounds and smells that one often does not get to experience in a vehicle.

Bird Watching

This has become a very popular activity in the Kruger National Park, mostly due to the hugely diverse selection of birds. Birds are in abundance throughout the park but the Northern area of the park is particularly favoured. Some of the birds that are found here can be seen nowhere else in Southern Africa. The Kruger National Park currently has eleven bird hides to choose from and over 226 different species of birds have been sited.

Play Golf

The Kruger National Park sports four courses for you to try your hand at. The Sabie River golf course, the Leopard Creek golf course, Skukuza and the Hans Merensky golf course. As the Park enjoys a sub-tropical climate, golf is best played in the cooler months of winter. This is a great opportunity to get up and close with wildlife, while enjoying 18 holes

While these are some of the top choices, there is a great selection of others to try in the area:

  • Self- drive through the Kruger National Park
  • Night Drive through the Kruger National Park
  • Wellness Spa treatments
  • Hot air balloon flights
  • Caving near the Kruger National Park
  • 4WD trails
  • Wilderness trails

While these are some of the top activities for you to try while on your holiday, there are plenty more. Be sure that there will be something for everyone to try in the magnificence that is the Kruger National Park.
