Kruger National Park in March

March is the last of the summer months in the Kruger and while daytime temperatures are dropping, you can still expect fairly hot days, pleasant evenings and the occasional afternoon thundershower.

March is generally a quieter time in the Kruger than the months leading up to it, so the southern and central regions see much fewer visitors. Head for the roads that run along the riverbanks between the camps of Skukuza and Lower Sabie (Sabie River), Olifants and Letaba (Letaba and Olifants Rivers) and Olifants and Satara (Timbavati).

You’ll see fewer visitors in the Kruger and the thick green and leafy vegetation makes for beautiful landscapes, but it also makes game viewing harder. Furthermore, the abundance of water throughout the park means that fewer animals tend to congregate around larger water holes.
