1 Best things to see & do in Kruger National Park

  • Kruger National Park, South Africa

  • Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa

The Skukuza Golf Course is a 9-hole (18-tee) course in the Kruger National Park, the only golf course actually inside the park boundaries. The course isn’t fenced in so there’s plenty of wildlife sightings – a lion once killed a buffalo on the first green; another time, a couple’s golf game was interrupted by a pack of wild dogs chasing an impala across the course.

Thankfully, local staff are on hand to chase the more dangerous animals away, and so far no golfer has ever been actually harmed, but you might have to make do with an audience of warthogs, baboons or even the odd hippo.

The nine-hole course plays as an eighteen, and although there are no bunkers, watch out for ‘aerial bunkers’ among the tree canopy that fringes the course.
