Kruger National Park is one of the biggest parks in Africa and, at nearly two-million hectares, the park is the same size as Slovenia! Kruger is filled with history as it dates back to around 1898 when the first areas were protected by the government. In 1926 the Kruger National Park officially became South Africa’s first national park. Many borders is open to game reserves located around the park for wildlife to roam free between the larger Greater Kruger Region. The year-round tropical climate means that this area is perfect to visit at any time. Winter often offers better game sightings as the animals are more energetic in the cooler weather, but the summer rains and the fruits of spring mean that waterholes are full and new life abounds in the summer months. With over 140 different types of mammals (including the Big Five), more than 500 species of birds and a biodiversity second to none – this natural haven is sure to deliver all that you were hoping for.
