Kruger National Park is an icon for South African Wildlife from Big 5 to the small 5, various antelope species including the Sable, giraffes, zebras, hippos, cheetahs plus a whole lot more including bird species, stretching around 360 kms long and an average of 65 km width. To enjoy the whole park and see amazing wildlife and the Big 5 you need to position yourself to stay at a few different places along the park, up until Perry’s Bridge Hollow was discovered.
It is the perfect location to stay as it is only around 15km to enter through Phabeni Gate to the park. This is basically almost the centre of the Park. And the best place to make your home during your trip is without a doubt Perry’s Bridge Hollow.
