Greater Kruger National Park

South Africa

The Greater Kruger National Park is one of the biggest parks in Africa and, at over two-million hectares, the park is the same size as Slovenia! The Greater Kruger National Park (GKNP) refers to the over twenty private reserves to the west of the Kruger National Park (KNP) which add 180 000 hectares to the reserve. In total, the whole area covers 20 000 000 hectares of unfenced, wild reserve with free movement of animals across this spectacular land. 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.
