Kruger National Park is one of the worlds largest wildlife sanctuaries, at 2 million hectares. Kruger National Park is truly South Africa’s national treasure. A unique and diverse landscape, ranging from open plains, to mountainous forested areas, this safari paradise has it all. Africa’s ‘Big5′ are more numerous in Kruger National Park than anywhere else in South Africa.
Kruger National Park has the largest number of mammal species of any South African safari park. Large prides of lion hunt the even larger herds of buffalo, wildebeest and zebra. The elusive leopard is often seen by tourists. Kruger Park has some of Africa’s biggest elephant herds, constantly on the move in search of food and water. Both the black and white rhino are found in large numbers within Kruger Parks borders.
Kruger Park South Africa
Kruger Park has a list of over 500 bird species, some of which are not found elsewhere in South Africa. Hornbills, starlings, vultures, rollers, bee-eaters and shrikes can all be found here. Birders can look forward to pursuing the ‘Big 6′ of birds, (saddle-billed stork, kori bustard, martial eagle, lappet-faced vulture, pel’s fishing owl and ground hornbill). Chances of spotting those animals which capture your imagination are increased tenfold when entering one of Kruger Parks nine main gates.
Kruger’s private and public camp-sites are abundant, but do not encroach on the landscape. Many are cleverly placed to blend in with the surroundings, only noticing them once you enter the camp gates. Each of Kruger’s camps offers guests something different. Whether it’s the lion rich Satara and Skukuza areas, or elephants down by the river at Lethaba, inside Kruger National Park you will feel a million miles away from the stresses of city life.
Kruger’s accommodation ranges from simple camp sites to world acclaimed 5 star lodges. There are numerous camp sites in Kruger National Park. Most camps have restaurants, shops, swimming pools and even a 9 hole golf course at Skukuza. The ultimate place to experience an un-tamed African holiday.
