    You need to have your own car here.

    Walking is naturally prohibited in most areas of the park, and you wont get to see much sans a vehicle.

    They do have tours (we did a guided night tour), but you really do need your own vehicle to get around and to view the animals properly.

    There are many car hire companies in this area and their prices are competitive.

    The photo shows the car we have travelled to the Kruger National Park in. It is ideal as it is a 4x4 and tackles loose gravel really well, and is higher up than a normal car, so viewing is better.

    A normal car is fine though, just ensure you have air conditioning. We used a normal car for Addo and it was fine.

    They know where the animals are, partially due to man-made watering holes. There are many forms of deer (springbok, kudu, etc.) that stand pressed against brush to be in the shade.
