Kruger National Park Images
Our Wildlife Photo Gallery

Welcome to our Kruger National Park images page! We've collated all our animal photos and put them into four different galleries:


All the photos you see are our very own photos, taken on various safaris to Kruger National Park throughout the years.

We've only included Kruger National Park images that clearly show what an animal looks like. We also only have pictures up for wildlife that we've positively identified, that is, we're certain of the species of animal we saw. It's easier to be sure of the mammals you see, except for small rodents and bats!) than the vast variety of little brown birds that all seem to be the same.

There are a lot of Kruger National Park images in our galleries and it'll take a while to load them all, depending on the speed of your internet connection. To help speed things up, we've kept the pictures to a reasonable size - large enough to see what the animal looks like, but small enough so that they don't take forever to load.

We've put together some tips for taking wildlife photos, which you may find useful for your safari. However, even with the best intentions, not all animal snaps come out perfectly.

Have you been inspired by our Kruger National Park image gallery? Do you have your own Kruger pic that you'd like to share? Then you can publish it on our Photos From Your Safari page. Have a go!
