Best time to visit the Kruger National Park
The Kruger Park can be visited year round. The rainy season - November to March - is the best time to see birds. It is also the time many animals give birth. The dry season during the winter months is generally the best time for game viewing.
The sheer size of the Kruger Park means a large number of entry points and distance variations. Most safaris will however start and end in Johannesburg at OR Tambo International Airport. Connecting flights to Kruger Mpumalanga International [KMIA] and other destinations are available from there or from Lanseria Airport.
Self drive visitors will need to be sure of the correct gate to access the accommodation they have booked and need to make sure they arrive in good time to make the camp. Two border crossings into Mozambique have opened, linking the Mozambique capital Maputo with the Kruger Park.
