Discover hotels and villas with private pools in Kruger National Park, South Africa

As big as Wales but considerably wilder, Kruger National Park is one of the world’s top places to get up close and personal with the Big Five: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. The park was set up to protect wildlife, but it also preserves human history, with ancient cave paintings and Stone and Iron Age artefacts all found within its borders (the Limpopo and Crocodile rivers to the north and south, and the Lebombo Mountains to the east). Kruger’s acclaimed wilderness is evident everywhere in its 7,500sq m of river-crossed veldt, but safari adventures needn’t mean roughing it: silver service and swimming pools await.
