Breaking away from the bustle of modern living and taking a holiday amongst natural wildlife is a great way to escape the endless notifications on your mobile phone and recharge to the soundtrack of the African bushveld. 

And there is no better place to become one with nature, than South Africa’s largest game reserve, the Kruger National Park.

It offers a change of pace

A day in the bush begins early and is full of small moments to savour, such as gently waking up to an orchestra of birdsong instead of your alarm, or watching elephants take a long, cool drink at a watering hole. A safari holiday in the Kruger is the perfect place to forget your nine to five schedule and reset your clock to Africa’s natural rhythm.
