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.
