Kruger National Park & Private Game Reserves

First gazetted as a game reserve in 1898 and almost the size of Wales, the Kruger National Park is one of the oldest and largest wildlife parks in the world.

Why visit Kruger National Park & Private Game Reserves ?

There are a number of private game reserves hugging the western boundary of the park, which further increase the total size of this remarkable wildlife area.

With a huge variation in vegetation ranging from thick bush to open acacia and mopane scrubland, and with year round supplies of water from a number of rivers such as the Timbavati, Sabie and Olifants, the park and its neighbouring reserves play host to a spectacular variety of animals. The ‘Big Five’ of lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant are all resident as well as a huge number of other mammals such as hippo, cheetah, giraffe and kudu and over 500 species of birds.

There are some good places to stay within the Park itself, but the best accommodation and guiding is to be found in the neighbouring private reserves that are excused the normal National Park rules: that is to say that bush walking and night drives are permitted, allowing you a unique and exciting perspective on this stunning wilderness environment.
