With 18 989 square kilometers of conservation area the Kruger National Park is South-Africa’s largest and one of the world’s most famous game reserves. This home of the mighty big five has a wider selection of mammal species than any other destination in Africa.
Established in 1898 by Paul Kruger, this foremost wildlife sanctuary offers a safe haven for game, away from hunters. The Kruger National Park is considered a must-see safari destination by many of its visitors. It boasts an extensive and varied ecosystem that offers many game viewing opportunities. Positioned in the attractive bush veld of the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces, this park is the ideal place to look for lion, giraffe, rhino, zebra, buffalo and a whole lot more.
