The world-renowned Kruger Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Low-veld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares, San Parks – Kruger National Park is unrivaled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies. Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians – , 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. Kruger Park, in north-eastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
The Kruger National Park is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest game parks. It has been praised for its endeavors in nature conservation, professional management of wildlife and the safeguarding of African cultural heritage. Over the last few years fences that separated the Kruger Park from neighboring parks have been removed allowing the wildlife greater access to natural resources as well as increasing the game viewing opportunities for tourists. Although the Kruger Park conduct trails in big five areas the main aim of these trails is to have a wilderness experience. The Kruger Park Wilderness Trails cannot compete with other expensive luxury destinations as far as guaranteed game viewing and service is concerned but we can offer vast open spaces and a special kind of atmosphere that very few other destinations can match. Everybody nowadays offers big five as part of the package. Few can offer an experience of real bush exclusivity. Kruger Park Wilderness Trails sees dangerous animals as part of the bigger picture and not the whole picture.
