KRUGER NATIONAL PARK
The largest game reserve in South Africa and certainly one of the largest in Africa, the Kruger National Park became South Africa’s first national park as early as 1926.
The Kruger National Park is home to the Big 5 and an extensive variety of animal, bird and insect species keeping visitors enthralled and totally engaged, whether on a self-drive tour or part of a guided safari excursion.
The African continent is the only place in the world where big game still roams freely in great numbers. In particular, the Kruger National Park area and the neighbouring private game reserves are famous for the incredible possibilities of seeing the Big Five up close. Kruger is easily accessible, having four airports which directly connect the area to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Victoria Falls and Mozambique
Seeing the "Big 5" in the wild is one of the most memorable things one can ever experience.
What To See
- Spot the Big Five, the Little Five, the Ugly Five and the Birding Big Five on a guided game drive in an open-sided safari vehicle
- Enjoy a more up-close bush experience on a guided game walk
- The private reserves to the west of the National Park, collectively known as Greater Kruger National Park, offer a more exclusive safari experience, at some of the most luxurious game lodges
- Private concessions and reserves offer night drives to spot the nocturnal creatures of the bush
- The Sabi Sand Reserve is the most highly acclaimed private reserve particularly noted for its leopard sightings
- The Southern Kruger offers the best game viewing and as a result also the highest concentration of accommodations and tourist activities
- Take break from looking for game and visit the beautiful Panorama Route – spectacular natural scenery including the world’s 3rd largest canyon – the Blyde River Canyon as well and lovely view points and waterfalls
