Kruger National Park
Kruger National Park, South Africa
When it comes to game reserve, the Kruger National Park in South Africa is second to none. Its wildlife diversity as well as density, landscape, accessibility, and accommodations are all unparalleled. Covering an area of 19,458 square miles, the national park is one of the greatest and largest not only in Africa but also all across the world. Safari Big Five consisting of Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Leopard, and Cape Buffalo certainly make major highlights, but they are not the only attractions here.
In addition to those safari superstars, Kruger National Park is also home to hundreds of other mammal species and 500 varieties of birds. If you look close enough, there are also 114 species of reptile including 3000 crocodiles. It is a heaven for wildlife enthusiasts and overall nature lovers.
Well-planned network of roads along with rest camps, private lodges, and restaurants allow you to spend days exploring all corners of the national park in comfort and witnessing the dramatic adventures of wildlife here. Kruger National Park has 9 different trails; a good portion of the park remains pure wilderness virtually untouched by humans. Although wildlife actions will captivate your excitement the most, it is almost impossible to miss the backdrop on the horizon.
Lebombo Mountains make a prominent posture to the east of the park as if they rise from the savannah, while the bushveld in the south and the tropical forest to the north create an infallible stage where the wild passionately showcase their most natural life to you. It’s big, it’s intense, it’s wild; it’s all natural in Kruger National Park.
