  • My husband and I stayed at Idube for our honeymoon and had an absolutely amazing experience! We saw tons of wildlife on our game drives, including all of the Big 5 (most multiple times) and lots of other animals. Our guide was very nice and informative. The accommodations were great and food was incredible too. The service is wonderful too, and Idube truly went above and beyond to make our honeymoon special with lots of surprises. Would highly recommend!!

Where to stay in Kruger National Park

Vast Kruger National Park offers a wide array of camping sites and lodges scattered around its pristine natural environment, both inside and outside its designated borders. The location of your accommodations usually depends on (or determine) the starting point of your tour across the park. As for the level of service in the camps, it can range from small sites with only a picnic area and bathroom facilities to fully-equipped villages with parking spaces, restaurants, filling stations, and more. If you'd rather sleep indoors, look into the various luxury lodges with elegant rooms, where you can also try out African cuisine, swim in pools, and enjoy the mesmerizing landscapes of the park.
