Location: The Kruger National Park covers nearly 2 million hectares and is home to an impressive diversity of flora and fauna,
including the "Big Five" - elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino - plus large numbers of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, hippo, antelope, and hyena.
Less common but also seen by visitors on safari are cheetah and wild dog.
Kruger Park is mainly a self-drive destination with numerous accommodation options including chalets, cottages, bungalows, tents,
caravan and camp sites or bushveld camps, bush lodges and private safari lodges.
