Safari In Kruger National Park
Regulated by South African National Parks (SANParks), Kruger National Park was established in order to protect the South African Lowveld, and offers conservation enthusiasts and tourists over 2 million hectares of amazing biodiversity to explore and experience. Throughout the park, SANSParks has established environmental management directives that leverage the park as a world-renowned leader in South African conservation efforts. Throughout the park, more than 300 archaeological sites have been discovered, among them those at Masorini and Thulamela, which reveal to travelers the rich history of human interaction and expansion through the region. However, a majority of conservation efforts are geared towards controlling hunting and preserving the ecology of the area. Kruger National Park provides open areas without borders or barriers in order to support this focused initiative. One element of conservation efforts in the park involves restricting vehicular traffic access on a daily basis, and many days only those with reserved accommodations are allowed entry. Companies like Nyati Safari work alongside Kruger National Park in order to offer travelers the guarantee of unique and exciting safari experiences.
As a travel agency, Nyati Safari offers conservationists on the job or the average traveler on holiday the chance to experience the majestic wonder of African wildlife that inundates Kruger National Park. Whether travelers are looking for a 4- or 7-day experience, Nyati’s safari packages include several open-top vehicle drives throughout Kruger National Park (a treat few tour companies have the license to offer), guided bushwalks led by certified and trained rangers, and evening trips throughout Kruger National Park in pursuit of sightings of the “Big Five” – lions, elephants, buffalo, leopards, and rhinos. In addition to the outings offered, travelers can book an additional full-day trip into the park.
And if you can manage a few extra days, Kruger National Park is host to a number of extra activities that can be added to the safari experience. As the safari lodge facility is located along the Olifants River, one of the easiest and most scenic add-ons to your safari experience is a river cruise along the banks of the river that border and flow into waterways that feed into Kruger National Park, where you can see crocodiles, hippos, and elephants. A microlight flight, airballoon trip, helicoptor tour, or even a quad bike trip through the bushlands are also optional excursions that can be added to the itinerary. If you’re looking for a safari option that doesn’t include vehicles through Kruger National Park, there’s the option of taking the excursion on the back of an elephant. There’s even the chance to visit Jessica the Hippo, made famous by the couple who rescued the orphaned hippo and have tamed her to the point that tourists can safely visit and interact with her.
These are just some of the amazing trip options offered by Nyati Safari’ as part of your excursion into Kruger National Park, whether it’s for pleasure or for conservationist purposes. Let Nyati Safari’s travel advisor’s help you tailor your travel experience and guarantee you see everything South Africa’s largest wildlife reserve has to offer.
