Stretched across nearly 2.5 million hectares of wild South African frontier and home to over 600 species of mammals and birds, Kruger National Park is massive by any measure. Designed for shutterbugs with more memory cards to fill than time to fill 'em in, this 9-day trip devotes the, ahem, lion’s share of its length to exploring South Africa’s most treasured game reserve with a few bonus experiences mixed in along the way. Get treated to a traditional family meal in Cape Town, take the train to Johannesburg with the locals, track the Big Five on daily game drives in Kruger and the surrounding area, and visit Soweto and a Planeterra project, too. Best of all, you’ll get expert guidance in photography and adventuring from our Wanderer-in Resident Gary Arndt, founder of Everything Everywhere, and recipient of the Society of American Travel Writers award for 2014 Photographer of the Year.
