This month we will be focusing on South Africa and all of the wonders it has to offer. From hiking to golf, from cuisine to some of the best game viewing on Earth, South Africa is the perfect, well-rounded destination. Today we’ll take a peek at Kruger National Park.
One of the most famous parks in the world, Kruger National Park offers a plethora of big-game experiences. From lions to elephants, Zebra and giraffes, hippos and buffalo, Kruger has it all. More specifically, Kruger is home to 336 tree species, 49 types of fish, 34 amphibian species, 114 different reptiles, 507 bird species and 147 types of mammals.
Located in the eastern edge of South Africa, Kruger covers an impressive 7,523 square miles and now shares an open border with Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique, creating the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a ‘peace park’ allowing animals to roam freely back and forth. Also bordering Kruger are fantastic private reserves such as the Sabi Sand, Manyeleti and Timbavati, which offer incredible game experiences, plus additional activities such as night drives, off-roading and game walks. Some of our favorites, and also some of the very best places to view leopards, are Mala Mala, Singita, Londolozi, Lion Sands and and Sabi Sabi.
