Best time to go to Greater Kruger Region
The best time to spot wildlife in the Greater Kruger Region is during the dry season, which typically falls between May and September. This wintertime season offers the best opportunity to spot the wildlife as the animals are drawn to the waterholes and other sources of water and the vegetation is less dense. During this time, the days are warm and the nights are cooler. The summer months have more rainfall and the green landscapes provide a stunning backdrop for photos. Plenty of young animals and their predators are present and bird watching is particularly enjoyable.
The Luxury Suite sits in amongst the beautiful bushveld. The air-conditioned suites each accommodate 2 people and feature a grand en-suite bathroom, with both an indoor and outdoor bath and shower. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the sounds of the bush around them.

The luxurious Manor House is settled amongst Weeping Boer Bean and Jackalberry trees on the banks of the Kuvenyami River. It features 2 downstairs bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a loft room with 2 single beds, accommodating a maximum of 6 people. The Manor also includes a living room area and a private deck overlooking the river and waterhole.
The Premier Suite is the perfect romantic getaway for honeymoon couples. The large suite includes a double bed, along with an en-suite bathroom with both an indoor and outdoor shower. The outdoor bath is an ideal spot to enjoy a glass of wine while listening to the natural surroundings.
