The iconic Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa, is world famous for offering a wildlife experience that ranks with the finest in Africa.

Kruger National Park  stretches 350 kilometres from north to south, is roughly the size of Wales and is virtually unrivalled in its diversity of life forms, with 300 species of tree, 49 fish species, 33 amphibian species, 114 reptile species, 507 bird species and 147 mammal species! Notable amongst its mammals are lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, hippo, Nile crocodile, giraffe and both black, and white rhino.

The park is divided into the busier, southern sector with several tarred road circuits and the quieter northern sector around Pafuri where there are fewer visitors. The park is managed as a public national asset, with cheap, basic accommodation in 12 main camps and a network of excellent roads for self-drive game-spotting.

Bordering Kruger are some of Africa's most exclusive private wildlife lodges, camps and reserves which guarantee visitors a far more intimate immersion in Africa's wilderness, including one-on-one encounters with the major predators, night-time game-drives and private bush walks.
