Best time to go to Kruger South

The best time to visit Kruger South is in the winter months, between May and August, when sparser vegetation allows for easier wildlife viewing. From November onwards the summer migrant birds arrive, along with plenty of mammalian newborns. The peak green season comes with a malaria risk, however, and it’s best to consult a medical practitioner for advice if planning on visiting during this time.
