Kruger National Park – from Phalaborwa via Letaba up to Olifants River

The Kruger National Park is a highlight for South Africa travelers.

In an area of approximately 20,000 square kilometers, one can admire the diverse wildlife of South Africa in its natural environment. One can easily drive through the park with his own car.

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is accessible over several gates. At the gates, visitors are registered and pay their Conservation fee. Comming from Pretoria via the National Road N1, we enter the park through the western Gate of Phalaborwa.

During the day, one can explore the park over a well -developed network of paved and dirt roads on his own. However, one should follow the Park rules and by no means leave the car. At nightfall, driving is not allowed in the park and also not recommendable. However, comfortable camps, spread over the park, are available for overnight stay.
View from Letaba Camp

We opt for the Letaba Camp. It lies on the banks of the Letaba River and due to its elevated position it allows a good panoramic view of the surroundings.
