Location: The Kruger National Park, South Africa's
flagship wildlife reserve, offers a game-viewing and safari experience
that ranks with the best in Africa.
Covering nearly 2 million hectares, the park is home to an impressive
diversity of flora and fauna, including 507 different birds and
147 types of mammal. In addition to the "Big Five" - elephant, lion,
leopard, buffalo and rhino - there are also large numbers of giraffe,
zebra, wildebeest, hippo, antelope, and hyena.
Kruger Park is mainly a self-drive destination with a good infrastructure
of roads, although many safari operators are now offering guided
tours in custom-built game-view vehicles. For those staying in the
reserve, accommodation options include chalets, bungalows, tents,
bush lodges and private safari lodges.
