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.
Kruger Park is mainly a self-drive destination with a good infrastructure
of roads, waterholes, picnic sites, and restcamps. Accommodation options
include chalets, cottages, bungalows, tents, caravan and camp sites or
bushveld camps, bush lodges and private safari lodges.
