KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

The Orpen gate of the Kruger National Park is an approximate 45 minute drive from Bundox Safari Lodge, Hoedspruit.

The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares, the Kruger National Park is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.

Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians - , 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. Man's interaction with the Lowveld environment over many centuries - from bushman rock paintings to majestic archaeological sites like Masorini and Thulamela - is very evident in the Kruger National Park. These treasures represent the cultures, persons and events that played a role in the history of the Kruger National Park and are conserved along with the park's natural assets.

Guests staying at Bundox Safari Lodge may elect to do a self-drive trip in to the Kruger National Park, or book a guided safari (recommended)

Guided safari’s to the Kruger National Park:

  • Full day Game Drive (05.30 am – 18h00pm)

Join us for a leisurely afternoon scenic drive on one of our private neighbouring non-big 5 reserves. The drive is approximately 3 hours, and includes a sunset stop with drinks and snacks provided. This reserve has some of the best views and scenery in the area, including Klaserie River frontage. 

GREATER KRUGER GAME DRIVES, WALKS AND FULL DAY DRIVES

We are very fortunate to have access to a private concession in the Greater Kruger National Park. This is most definitely off the main stream tourist path. We take a short 45 minute drive from Bundox to the gate where we enter. Enjoy all the same wildlife that you would experience in the Kruger Park, but without other vehicles. 

We offer morning drives, afternoon drives and walks, plus we offer the option of having a full day out in this particular area. The full day trip includes brunch in a bush location.  

MOHOLOHOLO WILDLIFE REHABILITATION CENTRE:

Moholoholo is a Centre for the rehabilitation of injured and poisoned wild animals and birds rescued from across South Africa. Wildlife is cared for with a view to returning it back to nature. Interesting and highly informative tours take place twice a day. Visitors get the chance to feed the vultures from their hands and see the lions real up close and personal. This is a once in a life time experience.

KINGONGA REPTILE CENTRE

This is for all the reptile lovers out there, and great education for the kids. For guests who wish to interact with the reptiles and have more of a “touch and feel” experience, there are interactive tours available, as well as tours for amateur and professional photographers, these tours require prior booking.

Reptiles at the centre include snakes, frogs, scorpions, lizards and spiders. No reptiles are bought or sold, so the breeding of these animals are kept to a limit and therefore only animals that can be released or relocated will be part of the breeding program.

HOEDSPRUIT ENDANGERED SPECIES CENTRE (HESC)

A guide will take you to through the facility on an open game drive vehicle where King Cheetah, wild dog and number of other rehabilitated animals can be viewed at close range. The Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre focuses on the conservation of rare, vulnerable or endangered animals. Cheetah Conservation is one of their core disciplines.

The Centre is actively involved in:

The breeding of endangered, vulnerable or rare animal species; the release and establishment of captive-bred cheetahs to the wild; the treatment and rehabilitation of orphaned or injured animals which are brought to the Centre; education of learners, students and the general public in conservation and conservation activities
