If you’re thinking of a 3 day safari Kruger National Park has plenty of things to do to entertain you. You’ll see a variety of animals and you could even try a game walk or drive.
Most people approach Kruger National Park from the south or south-east. Staying in the southern region, the first region you’ll get to, is a good option for a 3 day safari. If you do, you’ll have a shorter distance to drive to your accommodation. That means you have more time to spend game viewing at your own pace.
The rest camps, the places where you stay overnight, in the southern region are:
A 3 day Kruger National Park safari will give you enough time to go on plenty of your own self-drive routes.
On top of that, we recommend trying a tour – a game drive or walk. A Kruger Park ranger will lead you into the bush and tell you information about all the wildlife you see, the flora and the park in general.
Some of these tours take place in darkness and they’re the only way to see the park beyond the rest camps at night.
You could also consider a bush braai (BBQ) where you’ll be with a small group of people and driven to a BBQ spot where you can enjoy an evening meal surrounded by the bush!
For 3 days Kruger National Park will be your home. During your safari, you’ll have a good introduction to the game reserve. You’ll have the time to appreciate the wildlife, the bushveld and relax.
Some people wonder if a 3 day safari to Kruger Park is long enough. If you want a solid introduction to the park it is enough time, but if you’re a really keen fan of the outdoors and wildlife is your hobby, then staying longer is definitely an option for you!
