It's important to remember though that the Kruger Park covers an area of 20 000 square Km (about the size of Wales),
of which the roads form a miniscule portion.
So there are never guarantees of what you'll see - and that applies to most parks where travel
is restricted to demarcated roads.
It is different in many of the exclusive private game reserves, where your game drives are less restrictive.
Luxury Game Lodges
If you're lucky enough to visit one of these luxury game lodges,
your safari drives will deliver exceptional picture opportunities.
The vehicle drivers are in radio contact and as soon as one of them comes across a special sighting, this information is relayed to his colleagues.
Visitor numbers are limited, so even if all the drivers converge on the scene of a lion kill, there will never be more than two or three safari vehicles at the same spot.
