Kruger National Park
Covering an area of 7,580 square miles in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in north-eastern South Africa, Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa.
It is home to all the Big Five game animals and is known as one of the finest safari areas in Africa. This can be attributed to the fact it has one of the highest densities of wildlife per square hectares. Additionally, sound environmental practices ensure the wildlife does not feel threatened by visitors, resulting in regular sightings of some of Africa’s most elusive predators and big game, often only a few metres from your 4x4.
