Skukuza Airport is the gateway to the Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, famous for its wildlife sightings. Bird lovers will delight in the array of birdlife found here. Expect to see the following feathered friends: ground hornbill, kori bustard, lappet-faced vulture, martial eagle, pel’s fishing-owl and saddle-billed stork.

Mornings in the bush are special, with golden light bathing the landscape in a soft glow – perfect for photography.

Anyone who has been lucky enough to see the Big Five will agree that it is an incredible experience. But apart from the Big Five (buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino), you’re likely to encounter other specials like thick-tailed bushbabies, warthogs, fruit bats, or even a spotted hyena.
