Location: The Kruger National Park, South Africa's flagship wildlife reserve, 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. Less common but also seen by visitors on safari are cheetah and wild dog.
