Visitors here also have a superb choice of lodges to stay in, including luxury and utterly unique accommodation experiences set amid the forests and the bush. Adjoining Kruger are a number of protected private parks which further expand the lands on which these animals can roam. Take a safari in Kruger National Park and experience the trip of a lifetime.
