The Kruger National Park is the oldest and largest national park in South Africa. Over one million people visit the Kruger every year. Located in the north of South Africa, bordered by Mozambique and Zimbabwe, the Kruger is one of the greatest national parks around the world. And this is why…

The Diversity -

The Kruger National Park is big. It‘s even bigger than Belgium, Wales, and Israel; so take your call. The national park is approximately 360 kilometers long, 65 kilometers width and is 90 kilometers from east to west.

Besides, there‘s a huge network of 1,800 kilometers of well-maintained roads and the reserve has 21 rest camps, two private lodge concessions, and 15 private safari lodges.
Extending over 20,000 square kilometers, the beautiful granite hills pepper the bushveld in the south, the Lebombo Mountains rise from the savannah in the east, and the tropical forests cut across the far north.

The Wildlife –

The Kruger National Park is home to a diverse variety of wildlife to explore.  
You will explore the Big Five (Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Buffalo, and Leopard). Remember that, this park has more species of large mammals within its borders than any other reserve in Africa.

Besides, you can see African wild dog – which is considered to be highly endangered species in South Africa. Now only about 400 are thought to remain wild in the country. But don‘t forget about their mammal counterparts the “Big Six” of South Africa.

Including the majestic Big Five, the African bird species can also be seen there. You will see the lappet-faced vulture, the martial eagle, saddle-billed storks, kori bustards, the ground hornbill, and the Pel‘s fishing owl.

Though most areas of the national park are covered in shrub mopane (which can be quite dense in the wetter months), you will find a good variety of Kruger‘s landscape filled with rivers, dams, and hilly areas offering beautiful views all waiting to be discovered.

The World-Class Accommodations –

The Kruger is famed as the most renowned privately owned game reserves around the world, including Sabi Sand, Timbavati, and Klaserie. But remember that, there are no fences between all of these reserves. This means the animals can enjoy wandering all over the huge park delightfully.

There, you will enjoy fine cuisine, luxurious rooms, assistance from expert rangers and the exceptional overall experience. These are the reasons why people go gaga over the Great Kruger National Park safari.

The Accessibility –

You can fly into Johannesburg, and reach the lodges where the ranger will wait for you in a game vehicle. You will be driven to a private room in order to marvel yourself at the wildlife along the way.

The Year-Round Expedition –

A Great Kruger National Park safari can be enjoyed year-round. With great conditions throughout the year, it‘s a bit easy to plan your visit to the park than any other African holiday. Some prefer visiting in winter when the heat is not intense and the vegetation is not as lush as it used to be after the summer rains.

Conclusion –

Now you‘ve got the reasons to embark on a Great Kruger National Park safari. Whatever things to do on your holiday bucket list, a Great Kruger National Park tour won‘t disappoint you at all.
