Kruger National Park Gate Times

Kruger Park Camp Gate times do not affect the lodges on Private Concessions. Your game drives are included in your rate. Departures in the morning differ throughout the year. You depart on your morning game drive about 30 minutes before sunrise. On the afternoon drive, you usually arrive at the camp about an hour after sunset. If however, you want to know what time the gates open at Kruger National Park, click here There is normally a 1 hour difference between the Rest Camp opening their gates in the morning and the time day visitors are allowed through the main entrance gates.

Transfers can be arranged from the Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport, Skukuza Airport, or the OR Tambo International Airport to any of the lodges in the Kruger National Park.

Destination Africa and Hoedspruit Online often have Kruger National Park specials including RSA Residents rates – email Anthony at bookings@destinationafrica.net for more information or any other requests.
