The Kruger, South Africa
Stretching from the flat Highveld grasslands, famous for its trout fishing, to the rugged escarpment of the Drakensberg Mountains, Mpumalanga includes some of the countries most famous "Big Five" game reserves in unspoilt wilderness, as well as breathtaking scenery and magnificent golf courses.
Golf in Kruger Park Area
The Kruger Park area is unique to South Africa, offering golfers the opportunity of sharing the golf course with wild animals. Try and play a delicate chip under the gaze of a giraffe and after herding a group of feeding warthog off the tee-box, try and concentrate on your drive. Golf in the Kruger Park area is as unique as it is exciting. Designed by Gary Player, the Leopard Creek Golf Course is a masterpiece. Access is by preferred operators only and although the green fee is the highest in the country, you will leave the course with nothing but admiration for one of Players best designs.
Accommodation in Kruger Park Area
Everyone that visits South Africa should go on Safari. The world famous Kruger National Park offers world class game experiences and the accommodation selection is endless. Stay at the ultra deluxe Sabi Sabi or stay on the golf course at Hans Merensky. If your budget is better suited for rest camps then Kruger Park has its own accommodation but we recommend, for those wanting a true safari experience, a two night stay on one of the private game reserves.
Sights Kruger Park Area
The major attraction in this area is the wildlife that is abundant in the Kruger National Park and the surrounding private game reserves. Here you will have the opportunity to self drive or be guided by experienced rangers into the park in search of the ‘Big Five’ – lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant. All game drives are carried out in open aired vehicles but for an added excitement we recommend a guided walk tracking one of the ‘Big Five’.
