Basic Kruger National Park


Experience the Kruger National Park as the locals do. For these tours, we use the SA National Parks Board accommodation in the main rest camps. We try as far as possible to book accommodation units with private ablution facilities. In periods of high demand, it may become necessary to use units with shared ablutions. Wherever possible we use different rest camps every night, giving you the opportunity to explore as much of this vast wilderness as your schedule allows. These tours are basic and unstructured, but incredible fun. They are an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Kevin, who usually guides these tours, is a Kruger Park fanatic. He has been visiting Kruger for more than 50 years now and knows the place inside out. He will share every bit of his knowledge and some of his memories with you, and, show you the fun side of Kruger.
Elephantastic South Africa Tours offers four options for this tour. If you would like a longer trip it can be customised for you.

    Do you offer self drive options of your tours?

    Yes we do. All our tours including a tailor made tour can be taken as a self drive option. Transport and guide related costs would be excluded.

    When is the best time to visit South Africa?

    • South Africa generally has a temperate sub-tropical climate with warm to hot summers and moderate to cold winters. With the exception of the south western parts of the Western Cape Province (Cape Town area) we have most of our rain in the summer months (November to February). Other factors such as the return of migratory bird species or the annual sardine run may be of interest to you. We recommend that you contact us and discuss your interests.

    Why do you not show exact pricing?

    • There are many factors to consider when costing a tour. We believe that we can give you better value if we take your circumstances and personal preferences into account.

    Can we bring Children?

    • Yes, in child friendly resorts. Most Wildlife resorts do not allow children under twelve years of age on open safari vehicles. Children over the age of twelve are usually considered as adults. Please contact us to confirm the child policy of the different resorts.

    Can we combine two or more of your tours?

    • Yes, tours can be customised to your taste and preferences. Domestic air travel may become necessary at an additional cost.

    Can we request a specific destination?

    • Most definitely yes. We can draw up a customised itinerary for you.

    Are your tour activities suitable for senior citizens?

    • Please advise us of senior citizens in your group when requesting a quote. We will ensure that all activities are suitable for them.

    Do you cater for people with special dietary requirements?

    • Please advise us of special dietary requirements when requesting a quote.

    You only give an indication of price for 4, 6 and 8 adults sharing double accommodation. What happens if we are a larger group?

    • We cater for groups of all sizes. The pricing on the website is merely an indication of what to expect. Please contact us for a quote.

    Do you cater for disabled tourists?

    • That is dependent on the nature of the disability. We are not in a position to give specialised care at this point in time. Please contact us to discuss this.

    What about malaria?

    • The high risk malaria area in South Africa is generally confined to the north-eastern regions. We would however strongly recommend that you consult a health care professional on this matter prior to coming to South Africa. Anti-Malaria medication usually reduces the risk considerably. Other measures such as insect repellents can also be effective.

    How do we pay you?

    • Use the payment function on this website.
