A secluded lodge nestled between the Panorama Route and Kruger National Park

Situated in the beautiful Lowveld, Kruger Cliffs Lodge offers the perfect combination of safari excitement and thoughtful accommodation in a private setting. The lodge is equal distance between Kruger National Park - with Orpen Gate a short distance away - the start of the Panorama Route at Strydom Tunnel and the bustling, charming town of Hoedspruit. The property borders the Blyde River Canyon Reserve and so boasts uninterrupted views of the Lowveld, while the cottages are situated right under Mariepskop and offer views of the Drakensberg Mountains. Guests can delight in various activities and services on offer, including a choice between a closed or open safari vehicle for Kruger excursions led by experienced guides.

Best time to go to Kruger Central

Best
Good
Acceptable
Like the rest of the park, Kruger Central enjoys rainy summers and dry winters. During the summer months (November to February), the area is lush with greenery and a spoil of baby animals, which makes it a fantastic time of year for a photographic safari. The winter months (May to August) allow for easily spotting animals, due to vegetation thinning out and water sources being scarce.
