“Kruger National Park in the winter season is best for game viewing” - Bundox Safari Co.

Orpen Gate in the central region of Kruger National Park

Views: 221 Visited: Nov 2019 Reviewed: Nov 20, 2019

Even though Kruger National Park Orpen Gate is only about a third of the way up the park, it’s a convenient entry point for the central region and close to a number of rest camps.

In fact, Orpen Gate is right on the doorstep of the very pleasant and peaceful Orpen Rest Camp. It’s a lovely place to stay at and very convenient if you’re arriving at the park later in the day.

As you’re heading towards Kruger Park, you might have already seen some wildlife. This is because there are some private game reserves which adjoin the western side of Kruger National Park here and you drive along their boundaries.

When you arrive at Orpen Gate, you’ll need to pay the Kruger Park entry fees.

You’ll know when you get to the gate. Each of the Kruger National Park gates have different designs and Orpen has some thatched huts surrounded by a forest of wooden poles.
The Gate is 467km (290 miles) from Johannesburg. It takes 6 hours to travel this distance by car.
