There are many activities to do in and around Dullstroom, however, if you enjoy getting up close and personal with nature then pack a lunch, hop in the car and travel out to the Kruger National Park. The Park is located only 2 hours and 16 minutes (167km) from the small town, which makes it the perfect excuse for a Dullstroom day trip.The Kruger Park is made up of 2 million diverse forms of wildlife, including the infamous big 5. The park blends archaeological and historical sites to bring the real spirit of Africa to its visitors, and is home to numerous species, including 49 fish, 507 birds, 114 reptiles, 147 mammals, 34 amphibians and 336 tree species. Safari trips can be organised with one of the park’s many experienced guides – these range from exclusive private safaris to affordable group safaris.
The Kruger Park welcomes all day visitors and has many picnic spots and rest spots throughout the park, which are available for your convenience. Detailed maps are available at the park’s entrances and these maps will indicate the location of all these stops. The admission fee for international guests is R264 per adult and R132 per child under the age of 12. However, if picnicking in the park isn’t for you, then keep in mind that all day visitors are welcome to dine at any of the restaurants that are situated at the main rest camps.If a day isn’t enough time to take in the park’s magnificence then why not stay over at one of the numerous Kruger Park accommodation options that are situated in and around the park. Two luxurious options include the Olifants Rest Camp or Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp, which has been nominated as being the best run camp for 3 years in a row.
