Location: The Kruger National Park is South Africa's flagship wildlife reserve and
offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa.
Established in 1898, the park covers nearly 2 million hectares. As such, it 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 good accommodation options including
chalets, cottages, bungalows, tents, caravan and camp sites, bush lodges and private luxury safari lodges.
