I don't want to discourage tourists to visit the Kruger National Park but those that RUN it must realize that the general standard has dropped in the last few years, and from when I visited just a year ago, standards really not up to scratch....More

We use Malalaan Gate often. As a first impression to Kruger Park it is a little disappointing. The proces of entry is fairly fast and the staff is is friendly.

You have to see it to believe it. A beautiful park, a jewel in South Africa. Still in awe months later, feel like I have to return someday. The animals are free and a sight to behold. A testament to how beautiful Africa is. Please...More

During our visit we were treated on sightings of a leopard, cheetah and a hyena family. Elephants are also easy to spot. Rhinos were a bit more difficult to spot.

What an experience, we were there for two days and we saw everything but a leopard. The best time is early morning or later in the evening before sunset. Keep your windows rolled up. At times you can't move your car as the animals are...More

Skip Kruger this time round. It's far out of the way and you're traveling with a toddler. Do the addo elephant national park instead. It's closer to Port Elizabeth and it has the big 5. If you want to do Kruger in future... More
