Kruger National Park

South Africa is proud of her largest and most renowned game reserve, the Kruger National Park, larger than Israel and rated the best safari experience in the whole of Africa. Visitors flock to the Kruger in the Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces to see wild animals in their real habitats.

Kruger offers independent wildlife viewing, world class facilities and untouched wilderness on nearly two million hectares of land stretching an incredible 20 000 square kilometres along the Mozambique border.

The Kruger National Park is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park that links game parks in Zimbabwe and Mozambique with Kruger – fences have been removed to allow freedom of animal movement.

While Kruger does offer tour operators, most visitors like to self drive and choose from a vast range of accommodation, from camping and self-catering cottages to rest camps consisting of huts, bungalows, upmarket guest cottages and guest houses. There are a number of exclusive, private game lodges within the Kruger National Park for guests with a desire to be pampered.

The park offers a quality infrastructure of roads, water holes, hides, picnic sites, shops and restaurants but the focus is on game watching and learning more about a disappearing habitat.

In fact, Kruger consists of six uniquely different ecosystems – baobab sandveld, Lebombo knobthorn-marula bushveld, mixed acacia thicket, combretun-silver clusterleaf, woodland on granite, and riverine forest! The four regions (far north, north, central and south) are completely unique and don’t seem to fit under the label of ‘bushveld’ for their extreme contrasts.

Kruger is almost a country on its own and a must-visit for every South African. Take only photographs, leave only footprints and respect what is left for the children.
