Visiting the Kruger National Park in October

Visiting the Kruger National Park in October

If you’re looking for a uniquely enjoyable experience in October, a trip to the Kruger National Park will let you see it waking up from its wintery dryness. 

The Weather

This is a pleasant time of year to take in the bush with a chance of showers, possibly even the first for the season.

Spring ensures that everything gets a little greener, which also marks a welcome end to the dry season. The days grow in humidity and in temperature, while the evenings even out warmly. 

Safari Tours

Thunderstorms restore once dry water sources, which gather animals for exciting sightings, making this a great time of year to book a safari tour and accommodation near the Kruger National Park.

As the bush gets lusher from rainfall, sightings might become more difficult, but game drives are hosted by professionals who know how to track and spot


This time of year, the temperatures do tend to rise, and there are days where it will still feel dry. The risk of malaria is still low due to the recent dry season, while being off-season means that there will be fewer other visitors to the park. 

This also means that you’ll have an easier time booking accommodation near the Kruger Park that gives you access to private game drives.
