Stay Location


Best time to go to Kruger Central

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.
