When planning safaris to Kruger and thinking of the various Kruger National Park accommodation options, a person must thoroughly consider the budget the adventurer is willing to invest.

Kruger National Park CampingOne of the wonderful accommodation choices at Kruger National Park Safari that are available to visitors, is the Skukuza Camp in the South of Kruger National Park.  It is situated perfectly upon the southern banks of the beautiful Sabie River, where a wide variety of amazing tree species grow all year long. There is a great abundance of all sorts of activities as well as generally very well thought-out facilities available for the ever curious visitors. Skukuza in Kruger National Park, also offers a wide range of different animals and exotic plants for any adventurer’s viewing from among the surrounding areas.  National landmark in Kruger and a popular choice for safaris as the nearest entry gate, Paul Kruger gate, is a mere 12km’s away. Paul Kruger Gate is the closest entrance to Skukuza and the quickest way to get in and out of Kruger’s “capital”. One is confronted by the large, somewhat controversial bust of Paul Kruger by sculptor Coert Steynberg as one crosses the Sabie into the National game reserve. Paul Kruger has become synonymous with the South African wildlife experience, and tourism authorities are understandably loath to tamper with the destination branding.Kruger gate is on the Sabie River which is the dominant watercourse in southern Kruger.
