Car Hire Kruger

Kruger Airport Guide

Kruger National Park is a famous nature reserve where you can see wild animals in their own habitat among bush, valleys and mountains. Look out for the ‘big five’ on safari (don’t forget to take your camera!) and enjoy the flora and fauna. Hidden away in the park are also archaeological sites and bushman rock paintings. You can explore all this by self drive with your car hire Kruger or take a guided tour with a park ranger. Take a 3 night wilderness trail or the Mopani sunset drive. You can also take a night time game drive and enjoy a bush braai.

Kruger Info

Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport is unusually pretty for an airport as it resembles a large African lodge with its thatched roof.

If you need food, there is a Wimpy and the Memphis Belle Café. A gift shop and convenience store are available for any last minute items.
