What is a private game lodge? Private game reserves are just that, private. they allow you to experience Africa's animals in their natural environment, undisturbed by the vehicles around them. It is important to keep in mind the differences between game reserves and the National Parks if you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime African Safari. Many travellers to Africa don't realize that there is a huge difference between game reserves and National Parks and this can often lead to disappointment because guests were hoping for a distinct type of experience .What can be even more confusing is that private game reserves often exist within the target National parks

SHIDULI PRIVATE GAME RESERVE SAFARIS
If you are looking for a unique safari adventure, it is essential to book in a private game reserve. Perhaps the most striking difference between the two lies in the exclusivity and freedom that guests will encounter and because there are fewer safari tours that take place in a private game reserve. Guests are allowed to freely explore the African wilderness
Kruger National Park Overview
The King of South African game Parks is the Kruger National Park
and one of the best game-viewing areas in all of Africa.
The figures speak for
themselves: 501 Bird species, 110 reptiles, 51 fish, 31 amphibians, 142 mammal
and over 23,100 plant species have been recorded here. The region itself is
enormous, extending from the Crocodile river in the South to the Limpopo in the
North, from the wooded foothills of the eastern escarpment to the humid plains
of the Low veld.
It certainly fulfills most visitors' fantasies of seeing magnificent herds of
game roaming across acacia-studded stretches of savannah and, of course, is home
to the Big Five.
The park is 120 km wide and over 450 km long, conserving 21,497
sq. km, an area the size of Wales or Israel. Despite its size, it is very well
developed, with a good network covering 2600 km of roads and numerous camps,
making a Kruger safari relatively hassle free.
