Skukuza Golf Course is the only Kruger Park golf course located in the park itself. It is a 72par, nine-hole, 18-tee course on the road to Paul Kruger Gate. Built originally in 1972, it is now open to the public. The course is as close-to-nature as you'll get with beautiful bushveld trees, wonderful bird life and views over Lake Panic. The course is not fenced in so a round of golf often provides wildlife sightings.
A lion once killed a buffalo on the first green and on another occasion, a honeymoon couple's golf game was interrupted by a pack of wild dogs chasing an impala across the course. Parks staff, however, do keep an eye on the area to keep dangerous animals away, and no golfers have ever been harmed by wild animals. The park staff has an eye on the area to keep away dangerous game. Nonetheless, an indemnity form must be signed before teeing off.
