While we are obviously backing our boys in green and gold, we can’t help but love that the All Blacks visited Kruger National Park during their downtime.


Kruger National Park, South Africa (04 August 2022) – The Kruger National Park got some surprise guests this week as the All Blacks rugby side visited in the hopes of seeing some wildlife.

The All Blacks are in South Africa on tour, and the upcoming matches against the team are highly anticipated! The first match kicks off in Mbombela, formally known as Nelspruit, at the Mbombela Stadium.

This match places the team in the perfect location to get some downtime in the bush. On their exciting day out, the team got to catch a glimpse of impala, giraffe, elephant and zebra.

The team called it a “special experience”, and we are so delighted to hear so. While South Africa is most famous for the award-winning beaches of Cape Town and the stunning skyline, the bush is equally as beautiful. Kruger National Park is the largest park in South Africa, spanning thousands of kilometres and situated in both Mpumalanga and Limpopo.

From the looks of their pictures, the team were driven up to the Mathekeyane “Granokop” lookout point. It is essentially a giant rock, and you can get out of your vehicle and walk around so long as there are no animals visible. To get to this point, you can travel down the H1-1 from Skukuza or up the H3 from Malelane or up the H1-1 from Pretoriuskop.

Take a look at their Kruger National Park trip below.
