Though Kruger boasts several locations where lions are known to linger, one of the best places to spot the park's big cats is atop the Kruger Tablets. Nestled along the southern edge of Nkayeni Region, the Kruger Tablets are dedicated to Paul Kruger, the founder of the Sabie Game Reserve, which later became Kruger National Park. A plaque on one of the site's rocks can still be seen from the adjacent road.

As its name implies, Hippo Pool – which sits near Kruger's southern border – acts as one of the park's premier locales for viewing hippos. In fact, hundreds of these giant, grunting creatures frequent this part of the Crocodile River, where they spend the majority of their time soaking in the water to stay cool. Crocodiles also reside here but are typically harder to spot.

Situated near the Shingwedzi River in the park's Nxanatseni Region, the Red Rocks are beautiful to admire. Exposed after years of wear by the adjacent river, the Red Rocks offer a stark contrast to Kruger's trees and savanna grasslands. Plus, these sandstone slabs are regularly visited by must-see animals like elephants, giraffes and lions.

One of two sites with ruins found inside Kruger's gates, the Albasini Ruins offer a look into the park's rich history. This locale houses the remains of a 19th-century trading post, where goods like beads, clothes and metal products were once traded between Portuguese colonists and the indigenous Ba-Phalaborwa. All that remains today are a few crumbled walls and some artifacts, but history buffs will likely enjoy snapping some photos and perusing the attraction's display cases.
