Kruger National Park is unrivalled in wildlife and ecosystem diversity. It is rugged, romantic, wild, luxurious as well as affordable – a safari destination which caters for everyone! As one of the largest reserves in Africa, the park is not only rich in ecology but in history and archeology as well. Its surface spans an area of 20 000 km sq, a result of surrounding reserves opening their borders to allow animals to roam freely between. There are over 145 species of mammals, 114 reptiles, and more than 500 bird species. A safari seekers dream!
There are many game viewing routes throughout the park, offering a variety of scenery during your stay. Bird and elephant enthusiasts are recommended to head to the far north for sightings, lions and other cats are more central, however the Big 5 and big herds of plains game – explore the south. Each section has its specific characters and ecosystems – all equally fascinating to discover. Best advice – give yourself time to experience both!
