Olifants River SafarisAfter spending hours tracking wildlife from your car, it can be nice to switch up your mode of transportation when exploring Kruger National Park. Olifants River Safaris runs twice-daily cruises out of Olifants River Lodge, about 10.5 miles south of Phalaborwa. Upon boarding the double-decker pontoon boat for your two-hour pleasure ride, head to the open-air level and keep your eyes peeled for hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, and elephants, all while listening for the distinctive cry of the African fish eagle.
