We are well on our way to 2022 but if you are planning a late-year African safari and you have chosen the Kruger National Park as the place to stay, you might have more than a few questions on your mind, especially seeing as we have lived through a year and a half of life as we thought we knew it being turned upside down.

The Kruger Park safari is still the dream for most holidaymakers coming to South Africa and to help you with your planning, while cutting back on the many hours of research that you would otherwise be doing, we have compiled a few of the most asked African safari questions to be asked this year.

FAQ’s about Safaris

What is the best safari in Africa?

The best safari in Africa is going to come down to what your expectations are. Given the fact that there are so many great safari destinations in Africa, and since it is such a huge continent with such diverse landscapes and wildlife populations, you should make sure that you research all of your travel possibilities. For many, the Kruger National Park is considered the preferred destination, not only because the park is packed with interesting animals, but also because it is close to many modern day conveniences.

Is an African safari worth it?

If you have the time and the money to go on an African safari, you won’t regret your choice for a moment. The African safari provides an opportunity to spot a wide range of wildlife, and it also makes adventure possible. Africa is one of the world’s last, untouched places, and on the vast open landscapes, where you hardly see a person, it can feel as though you are the last person on the planet.

What is the best month to go on an African safari?

You will certainly want to rather travel during the winter months, from May to September. If you travel during the other times of the year, the heat can be a little too much while the vegetation is going to be so overgrown that you will not be able to see much.

The Kruger Park never closed, but the limitations on international travel has meant that those who have wanted to travel to the park in the last year and a half have been prevented from doing so. It is best to check up on the latest information about travel to South Africa from your country.
