Find the Ideal Season

for Your Kruger Park Safari

Kruger National Park offers unique safari experiences throughout the year! Here’s what to expect during each season and when to visit based on your goals:

Summer (October-April)

Lush landscapes, newborn animals, and excellent birdwatching. This Kruger Park rainy season brings warmer weather and afternoon rain showers. Vegetation will be thick, so wildlife spotting might be more challenging.

Winter (May-August)

The peak safari season for classic game viewing! The weather is dry, skies are clear, and animals gather near water sources, making them easier to spot. Temperatures are mild during the day, but nights can be chilly.

Easy Game Viewing: Opt for the dry winter months.
Lush Scenery & Baby Animals: Experience the summer’s transformation.
Birdwatching: The rainy season offers a diverse array of species.
Tips: Warm layers are essential in any season due to temperature shifts!
