If you have the time to spend 5 or more nights in Kruger, then you are going to have a dream bush experience…!
With that much time, there is an incredible number of variations of itineraries that you could build. The first key question is whether to stay in one or two rest camps and explore those areas in detail at a steady pace, or whether to visit a few camps and travel through a greater amount of the park’s diverse and varied habitats.
Once you’ve decided on that, you can start to build an itinerary to match your interests and style of travel. Perhaps consider stitching together a couple of the 2-, 3- and 4-night itineraries listed in this section of the App, or at least reading through them to give you some ideas.
Make sure you have a read through each of the individual rest camp profiles too, as that will give you a flavour for what you can expect from each in terms of accommodation options, local habitats and potential wildlife sightings.
The key thing to avoid is having to travel too far between different rest camps in a single day. Doing that just ends up feeling stressful and might encourage you to speed, which endangers the wildlife and significantly reduces your chances of seeing things. Slow and steady is the best way to navigate Kruger!
