Hi all!

Myself and a friend are booked in for 2 nights in Pretoriouskop and one night in skukuza on the 2nd week of October.
I am wondering what "activities" we should book, and indeed what these are?! Does this mean guided tours?
Also, should we hire a car and drive ourselves instead of guided tours..?
if so, where can we hire a car? We fly into Skukuza airport,

any help on this would be appreciated,

many thanks,

Amy

Amy, you will be able to hire a car from Avis at Skukuza airport, but do think you need to book it beforehand.
Have a read through Here particularly the last few pages for lots of info and advice.

Here is a list of Activities offered in the park.

Info on Walks taken from camps

Info on Night/Sunset Drives from camps

If you are staying in various camps you will definitely need a car to get between them.
Plus it's really the best way of sight seeing.

Thanks for your helpful reply Elsa.

I will try to book a guided walk and Bush braai!

I am looking into booking a car from Skukuza airport now - is GPS needed?

Also, can I pay conservation fees on arrival to Kruger?

Many thanks :)

You don't need a GPS when driving in Kruger, all you need is a map. You can buy one at the Park Shop. It will indicate where waterholes are, distances between camps, tar and dirt roads etc.

You will be able to pay your conservation fees when you check in at your first camp.

Hope this helps :thumbs_up:
