The Kruger National Park is undoubtedly South Africa’s most popular bush destination, and one of the world’s best game reserves. For a Big Five holiday, it can’t be beaten.
The size of Belgium, Kruger stretches for 500 kilometres across Mpumalanga and Limpopo Province, encompassing almost two million hectares of wilderness. The game reserve forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park – a peace park that is being formed linking Kruger to parks in Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
The Kruger National Park offers the ultimate wildlife experience. With two climactic zones and 14 distinct eco-zones, the park contains a plethora of animal and plant species, and an unrivalled diversity of large mammals.
Aside from game drives, activities in the park include 4×4 trails, guided walks, canoeing and even golfing. Most people opt for self-drive trips through Kruger, although there are guided safaris available. Accommodation ranges from rustic bush camps to top-end luxury private game lodges.
