Undoubtedly one of the most well known reserves in the world, the Kruger National Park is the pride of South Africa. Established in 1898 by former South African president Paul Kruger to protect the wildlife of the area, the park spans almost 2 million hectares making it one of the largest in the world and home to over 1000 different species of trees, fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles and mammals.
With a terrific concentration of game, including all the Big Five, and some of the soundest environmental management techniques and practices, the Kruger National Park is a true haven for Africa’s magnificent fauna and flora. There are also several important archeological sites scattered throughout the park that celebrate the diversity and culture of mankind in the area.
Accommodation in the Kruger National Park ranges from the rustic to the regal, with public campsites and lodges to private concessions and luxurious suites offering something to suit all tastes and budgets. Visitors to the park can also choose between self-driving or soaking up the expert knowledge of some of the best guides in Africa on one of the many 4×4 game drives on offer.
After a solid day’s game viewing in one of the highest concentrations of game in the world, relax under the African stars with a good book or sundowners by the waterhole as the thirsty animals join you in a refreshing drink. The Kruger National Park is Africa at its best.
