Accommodation within the Kruger National Park itself can naturally be quite expensive and needs to be booked well in advance. An alternative is to find accommodation outside of the park but within easy reach of one or two of the Kruger Park Entrance Gates. Here are a few ideas of venues that fit this bill.
Kruger National Park has eight entrance gates.
There are five gates in the Southern Section of Kruger Park:
- Malelane Gate
- Crocodile Bridge Gate
- Numbi Gate
- Paul Kruger Gate
- Phabeni Gate
There are two gates in the Central section of Kruger Park:
- Orpen Gate
- Phalaborwa Gate
There is one gate in the Northern Section of Kruger Park
- Punda Maria Gate
These gates open at the following times:
- October to March: 05h30
- April to September: 06h00
