The Kruger National Park is one of the best places in Africa to cost effectively and successfully go on a self drive safari, as this 360° video illustrates. Two leopards seen within an hour of entering Malelane Gate.
This turned out to be a very good drive with lots of wildlife being spotted in the Southern part of the Kruger National Park, which has a high density of various animal and bird species.
Kruger National Park Live Webcams

Situated in the world famous Sabie Sands game reserve which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park ecosystem, this live waterhole webcam is the first and oldest in Africa.
Launched in 1998, it's manned by volunteers who pan and zoom the camera manually to highlight any wildlife that might be drinking at the dam.
Due to the fact that this cam has infrared capability, it's one of the best for nocturnal animal sightings.
Also based in the Sabie Sands game reserve which has no fences between it and the neighboring Kruger National Park.
This solar powered webcam is situated at a secluded waterhole near the Naledi Game Lodge in the Balule Game Reserve, which adjoins the Kruger National Park in the east.
It provides the opportunity to see a wide variety of animal species, particularly elephant, giraffe and antelope. And African predators have also been known to visit on occasion.
One of the few cams set on the banks of an African river, it provides the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the Olifants river ecosystem in real time.
Crocodiles and hippos are regularly seen along with a variety of other animal and bird species.
The Kruger Shalati is a train on a bridge over the Sabie River in the Kruger National Park that has been converted into luxury accommodation.
There are three live streams from the bridge and the surrounding areas with webcams strategically placed to optimise wildlife sightings.

Sabi Sands : 24 lodges
Timbavati : 18 lodges and 4 self catering camps
Klaserie : 16 lodges and 5 self catering camps

The park is situated within a malaria area so it's recommended that any visitors take anti-malaria medication.
Consult your medical professional about the correct medication for your situation.
The southern part of the Kruger National Park has a higher density of plains game and predators than the north, so you might see more game on a regular basis there.
That being said, you will still have excellent wildlife and bird sighting even in the northern parts of Kruger.

Flights - Skukuza & KMIA Airports
There is an airport situated inside the Kruger National Park itself near Skukuza rest camp, but it's not big enough to allow international flights.
So to get there you would need to take a connecting flight from one of the international airports in South Africa, like O.R. Tambo in Johannesburg or Cape Town International.
The Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) is based just outside Nelspruit and can accommodate international flights. It's a 45 minute drive to the nearest Kruger gate at Malelane.
Kruger National Park Weather
Being in a summer rainfall area means you can expect higher precipitation in the park during the months of September to March.
Summer (October to February) temperatures are regularly above 30° C and in winter (April to August) they rarely dip to below 10°.
