The Best Luxury Lodges in Kruger: Our Top Picks

The Kruger is one of Africa’s oldest conservation areas and home to the widest diversity of wildlife in South Africa. A Kruger National Park safari delivers some of the finest game viewing in the world. It’s not unusual to see all of the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard) in one day, plus fantastic sightings of sought-after species like cheetah and wild dog.

Because it’s such a big area – almost 1.5 times larger than Connecticut – we frequently get asked: Which part of Kruger National Park is the best? Where should I stay when visiting Kruger National Park? To experience crowd-free game viewing and the best lodges in Kruger National Park, we recommend staying in the Kruger’s private game reserves. The park shares its unfenced western boundary with a handful of conservation-driven, private reserves that are some of the best safari locations in the Kruger National Park and home to some of the finest lodges in Africa.

These 5-star lodges in Kruger offer couples, honeymooners and families a luxury safari experience bar none – think superb service, even better cuisine, fully equipped gyms, tranquil health spas and private butler services! Throw in smooth-running logistics, some of Africa’s best trackers and guides, plus off-road game viewing and night game drives (activities not permitted in the public park) for the best Kruger National Park safari vacation.
