Situated in northeast South Africa, Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s biggest game reserves. Its vast assortment of wild animals includes lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos, while hundreds of other mammals make their home here, along with diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. The dramatic landscape is a major attraction too, with its rugged mountains, bush plains and tropical forests.

Many people who come to visit Kruger start their journey in Johannesburg, located 400 kilometres west of the park and one of South Africa’s major hubs for arrivals into the country. Many Kruger tours include a transfer direct from Johannesburg, but there’s also the possibility to make the trip independently too. Below you’ll find our pick of 7 of the best Kruger Safaris from Johannesburg currently available.
