Location: The Kruger National Park covers nearly 2 million hectares and is South Africa's flagship wildlife reserve. As such it offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa.

Established in 1898, the park is home to an impressive diversity of flora and fauna, including 507 different birds and 147 types of mammal. In addition to 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, waterholes, picnic sites, and restcamps.
