Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park in South Africa is an internationally renowned destination that offers the world's greatest safari experience. It is unmatched in terms if the diversity and quantity of African wildlife and the beautiful vastness of its landscapes.
Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa. It is roughly the same size as Wales. It covers 18,989 square km (7,332 sq mi) and extends 350 km (217 mi) from north to south and 60 km (37 mi) from east to west.
To the west and south of the Kruger National Park are the two South African provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo. In the north is Zimbabwe, and to the east is Mozambique. It is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park that links Kruger National Park with the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe, and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.
The park is part of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere, an area designated by the United Nations Education and Scientific Organization (UNESCO) as an International Man and Biosphere Reserve (the "Biosphere").
It is an astonishing testament to the chasm between modern society and the raw wilderness of Africa. Acre after acre – 5 million of them in fact – is packed with the fascinating components of an intricate ecosystem unspoilt by the heavy hand of man's so-called progress.
This vast park is the wild heart of several private reserves and concessions including the Sabi Sand, Timbavati and Kruger Private Concessions. To the North, the gargantuan transfrontier peace park straddles three countries and covers a staggering 8.2 million acres.
The Kruger National Park and the surrounding private reserves are the heart of South Africa‘s big game country. It is here that you`ll find the country`s most famous private lodges and some of the best wildlife viewing in the world.
