  • We were 3 days visit the Krüger NP from this gate. We could have had no more luck. We have all big 5 huge herds of elephants bathing seen (up on the Rhinoceros, cheetahs also), too and a lot more. We have seen hardly any other cars and were able to observe all animals alone. Since we were in March, all animals had their young. The streets, also the yellow loops were easily with normal car to drive on. We were and still are, just thrilled!
