Encompassing nearly two million hectares and fourteen different ecosystems, Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa on a South Africa vacation and is located in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in northeastern South Africa.

Although areas of Kruger (named for former South African Republic president Paul Kruger) have been protected since 1898, it officially became South Africa’s first national park in 1926. Today, Kruger is run by the South African National Parks (SANP) and is considered by many to be one of the best managed national parks in Africa.

The main goals of Kruger National Park are wildlife, conservation, education and tourism. On South Africa safaris, the park boasts “the Big Five”, the lion, the African elephant, the Cape buffalo, the leopard and the rhinoceros. The term “Big Five” was coined by big game hunters regarding the five most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot.

Offering a true African safari experience, Kruger is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. This project is a peace park that links Kruger with Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and with Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. Fences within the park are coming down, allowing game to roam freely in the way they did before the intervention of men.

Book your Kruger National Park South Africa safari today and you will be amazed when you experience the largest concentration of games species on earth and the best developed infrastructure of all Africa's game parks!
