Budget Kruger National Park Safaris – Book an Affordable Safari to South Africa

The Kruger National Park has something for everyone. This is why, although there are numerous similar parks, the Kruger remains a favourite across the globe. Budget Kruger Park safari like those by Nhongo Safaris have made the park more accessible to every kind of traveller, and our selection of budget packages are perfect for anyone looking to escape to Africa, even if it is just for a few days.

Those serene African sunsets, the call of the owls, roaring lions and laughing hyenas, make the Kruger the one place on earth where the moment you enter the vast, bushveld landscape, it feels as though nothing else matters. Time stands still in the park, which makes it the perfect destination for those looking to take a break from it all. Besides our affordable safaris in South Africa, we also offer luxury Kruger National Park Safaris and of course there are the classic Kruger safaris and our specialty safari options.

Why “Budget”?

The word “budget” is used as a term to describe an economically friendly safari holiday. While the accommodation and the amenities available with these packages is likely to be a little more rustic, trips into the park are on par with those luxury options. The variety of packages are suitable for all kinds of travellers including solo visitors in search of a real African adventure, romantic couples looking for some quiet time away, travelling groups of friends looking to make memories, and families wanting to enjoy a once in a lifetime trip.

To keep expenses low, many tour companies including ours, prefer to set guests up within one of the many Kruger National Park camps. Staying in bungalows or huts is the norm, and this style of accommodation has the kind of perks that those staying outside of the park will not get to experience. Being able to sleep within the park is considered by many to be a luxury in itself. The Kruger has its own unique vibe and it is best experienced by staying in one of the camps.

An Affordable Safari in South Africa


With the budget option, guests should keep in mind that they might have to share bathrooms and kitchen spaces. Communal is the norm when staying in certain bungalows and huts, but that again is a perk, as park guests will get to mingle with one another and share exciting stories about what they have spotted during one of their drives in the park.

And then there are those Kruger Park evenings. As the sun goes down, nocturnal life awakens and the night is filled with the sounds of predators. Roars in the distance from hungry lions calling to one another, with bats, owls and all sorts of night birds adding their voices into the mix, while hyenas prowl the camp perimeters, lured by the smell of meat cooking over an open fire, in the true South African style, all add to the magic.

Safari drives begin early in the morning. Guests rise well before the sun has risen, as it is park lore that the best time to see wildlife is in the cool morning hours. Once the sun reaches its zenith, the day becomes overwhelmingly hot, even in the winter months. Animals and humans alike seek out the cool shade of trees and those staying in certain camps will have the opportunity to take a dip in the camp swimming pool. After a break from the heat, the safari continues in the afternoon, with guests climbing on board the open safari vehicle to enjoy a late afternoon/early evening drive.

While staying in the park, guests are in the best position to spot wildlife, as often some wildlife will come into the camps to nibble on grass or attempt to steal food.

Those who are going to enjoy a self-drive into the park can opt for affordable accommodation which can include camping, huts and bungalows, while there is also the option of guest houses or other styles of accommodation, although these can be a little more expensive.
