Kruger Park Activities – Things You Can Do at Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park

In the Kruger National Park, there are many things to do. There are game viewing and safaris, bird watching, and hoedspruit endangered species centre. The Safaris are very popular with people who want to see the animals in their natural habitat.

1. Game Viewing/Safaris

The Kruger National Park is one of the best places in South Africa to see wildlife. The park has been home to rhinos, lions and elephants since it was created in 1902. It’s also a great place to visit during the dry season (from October through March), as this is when most animals come out of hiding and into their natural habitats.

If you want to see everything there is to see at Kruger National Park, make sure that you stay at least three days! If possible try taking a game drive with your driver who knows how best where they should go so that they can keep an eye on those precious creatures while driving around in their vehicles looking for them (and hopefully getting some photos).

2. Bird Watching

Bird watching is a popular activity in the Kruger Park. The park has over 600 different species of birds, making it home to more than 300 species of mammals and 4,000 species of plants.

The annual migration period for many bird groups makes them easier to observe during this time. It’s also possible to spot some rare or endangered birds here too!

3. Visit Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre

The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre is a place where you can learn about the animals of Africa. It has a large collection of reptiles, birds and mammals that are threatened with extinction. You can also visit on your own or take a guided tour through the centre’s exhibits.

4. Have a Safari to Albida Tourism

Albida Tourism is a small town in the Kruger National Park. It’s a popular tourist destination because of its close proximity to the park, which makes it an ideal place for visitors who want to do some activities while visiting Kruger. The town has many hotels and restaurants, so you can stay at one of them if you’d like.

If you’re looking for something more active than just sitting around drinking coffee all day long or eating dinner at restaurant after restaurant, then try exploring parts of this area by yourself!

5. Engage in Kruger Walk, Artefact Trail and Panorama Route

Kruger National Park is home to over 400 species of birds, including the endangered black rhinoceros and white rhinoceros. The park is also known for its abundance of water in the form of rivers, dams and lakes.

The Kruger Walk is a trail that passes through some of the park’s most popular attractions:

  • Zululand Ridge – This section includes views into Africa’s largest canyon at Victoria Falls (Victoria Falls), where you can see over 300 falls cascading down into deep valleys below. The trail offers stunning panoramic views across 2 provinces – Limpopo Province and Mpumalanga Province – as well as Zimbabwe’s Matobo Hills plateau area.
  • Sabi Sand Game Reserve – This reserve is located on an isolated peninsula within Kruger National Park that has been designated an international conservation area since 1965 due to its unique biodiversity values such as elephants, lions and leopards roaming freely throughout its open grassy savanna terrain; large populations of African buffalo; herdsmen living off their livestock; crocodiles lying lazily on banks near riverside villages; hippos swimming leisurely across streams; small groups hunting wildebeests at nightfall during mating season (April through May).

6. Go to Cheetah Centre at Hoedspruit

The Cheetah Centre is located in Hoedspruit, which is about an hour’s drive from Kruger National Park. The centre offers a chance to see cheetahs up close and personal, as well as learn more about them.

The cost of admission to the Cheetah Centre is R120 per person (R150 for children under 18 years), payable at reception upon arrival. Children under 3 can enter for free; however if you have children younger than 2 years old please bring a blanket or mat so they can sit down on the floor without getting dirty hands!

You can catch a bus from Johannesburg or Pretoria if you’re staying closer to these cities but most people arrive via minibus taxi from Johannesburg City Centre (Johannesburg). The driver will drop off at Soweto Gateways Bus Terminal where there are signs directing drivers onto Route 58 which leads straight into Hoedspruit township itself – this route takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes depending on traffic conditions during peak times such as weekends when everyone wants their money back!

7. Enjoy African Horse Safaris

The African Horse Safari is a 2-hour horseback safari that will take you through the bush and give you an up-close view of some of Kruger Park’s most iconic animals. Hikers are transported on sturdy horses and can choose to ride for as long as they like, although we recommend taking at least one break in between rides. If you’re not sure how much time it takes to complete a safari, ask your guide before getting on board; some rides are shorter than others depending on how fast or slow your horse moves through the bush.

The Big 5 are just some of the animals that can be spotted during this experience: lion (1), leopard (2), rhino (3), buffalo (4), elephant (5). Other common sightings include giraffe, zebra and impala so if one doesn’t sound appealing then don’t worry! There’s always something new around every corner when it comes down these types crafts

8. Participate Water Adventures – Apart from the animals and birds, there are several other activities you can enjoy

If you’re looking to cool off and spend some time in the water, there are several other activities that you can do.

  • You can go on a boat cruise on the Crocodile River. This is one of Africa’s best-known rivers, which flows through Kruger National Park and has been designated as an internationally important wetland area by UNESCO. It has many different kinds of wildlife including hippos, elephants and crocodiles – but no less than 250 bird species call this river home! In fact, it was once proclaimed ‘the most photographed river in South Africa’ because so many photographers flock here each year due to its unique beauty (and also because it happens to be very photogenic). The highlight of any trip down here will be seeing these animals at close quarters; however if you want more than just watching them from afar then consider renting kayaks or even cruise boats for yourself! Both options allow visitors plenty opportunity for taking photos while still having plenty left over after returning safely back onto shore again too – perfect if both types appeal equally well then go ahead with whichever suits best depending upon how much money might already be available…

There´s lots to do in the Kruger Park.

Game viewing, bird watching, horse riding and swimming are some of the activities available at this popular park. There are many accommodation options ranging from luxury lodges to self-catering tents or basic huts. With so much going on it is easy to find something for everyone. For your little ones there are plenty of regular programs including children’s campsites where they can learn about nature through crafts made from recycled materials or participate in a variety of activities such as painting animal portraits or making their own eco-friendly model rhino home! Adults can also join some of these activities too but if you want something more relaxing then why not have some fun at one of our spa facilities where we offer massages treatments as well as mud baths which will relax sore muscles after a day out exploring all corners of Kruger National Park!


The Kruger National Park is a wonder for all to see and experience. The park is home to many animals and birds, as well as plant life. This makes it an ideal place where you can spend time with your family or friends enjoying nature at its best!
