Kruger National Park

Park & Ride

Hop in and ride - it's as simple as that! Guests at Kruger now have the opportunity to make use of the "Park and Ride Scheme" where you can get to see the Big 5 and contribute to local empowerment.

The "Community Drive Project" is a joint venture between SANParks and Vuswa Fleet Services. It is an initiative to empower people on the periphery of the Park.

Activity
