    Default Advice on Kruger wilderness trails

    Hello,

    Although I know this is for 4x4, sometimes we like to get out of our vehicle to experience the bush on foot. We are considering to do a wilderness trail in Kruger next Christmas period 2019-2020, wondering if anyone has recommendation for us which trails are good in that season. Or any other tips welcome!

    Canít offer you any advice on the Wilderness Trails, but if you change your mind and want info on the backpacking trails in Kruger, Iíve done all three and can give you a couple of good tips.

    Not sure of the Wilderness Trails, but I know the backpacking trails close for a few months, I think November to February because of the heat.

    The wilderness 4x4 trails are also closed indefinately due to poaching. Really sad as it was a way to see the park in its most natural form away from other people without tar roads or large dusty dirt roads. You could also get out on the routes and and use a gas braai (for obvious reasons), as long as you are in a clearing where you could see animals approaching, and stay within a few metres of your vehicle.

    For walking excursions you can also try the morning and evening bush walks from camp.
