Kruger National Park, South Africa (31 August 2021) – Whether you have spotted a lion pride on the roadside or have a giant elephant on the approach, there is nothing more exhilarating than having a photo taken with a beautiful wild creature from the Kruger.

Enjoy Travel, an international car website, asked their team to analyse social media to find the 25 Most Popular Selfie Spots in the World. The team compiled data from both Instagram and TikTok to come up with the locations that had the most selfies. Kruger National Park made the top 10 list.

Selfies are now embedded into our culture, and with an average of 93 million selfies taken a day, you can say we take a lot of them. As the Instagram-famous saying goes: ‘Pics or it didn’t happen!’

“The Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. It is home to a vast array of wildlife including the Big Five. As you can imagine, safari holidays here are very popular, and so too is taking selfies. Just be sensible and abide by the park rules. Remember, these are wild animals and should be treated with respect. One of the best places in Kruger National Park to get a selfie with sleeping lions in the background is Kruger Tablets. For an elephant selfie, head to the N’watindlopfu River crossing.”
