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.

If you want to check out the Red Rocks, consider staying at Shingwedzi rest camp, which is located less than 15 miles away. The sight can be accessed by car or safari vehicle, though game drive routes vary depending on the guide. Driving can be a bit tricky in this part of the park, so ask for detailed directions from a Kruger employee before heading out.

The Red Rocks are free to access throughout the day, but like other areas of the park, limited gate hours and driving restrictions apply. What's more, the Red Rocks has no on-site amenities, so use campsite facilities before visiting. You won't need more than 30 minutes to take in your surroundings here.

If you don't have multiple days to spend at in-park trails like Wolhuter and Nyalaland but want to explore the area on foot, consider signing up for a river walk or a morning or afternoon bush walk. These two- to four-hour walks depart daily from main rest camps like Letaba, Lower Sabie, Olifants, Satara and Skukuza. However, river walks by the Olifants River are only offered at the Olifants rest camp. Each walk is led by two experienced guides.
