The Kruger National Park

After dodging the more dangerous human wildlife in Johannesburg, you can spend time viewing the best of Africa's wildlife in the Kruger. About the same size as Israel or Wales, the Kruger National Park is the largest game park in South Africa. To the North of the park is Zimbabwe, to the east is Mozambique, to the south Mpumalanga, and to the west is both Mpumalanga and Limpopo.

Multitude of species

The Kruger National Park is home to more species of wildlife than any other game sanctuary in Africa, including:

The flora includes 336 species of trees.

The park is composed of six ecosystems:baobab sandveld

  • combretum-silver clusterleaf woodland on granite

  • lebombo knobthorn-marula bushveld

  • mixed acacia thicket

  • mopane scrub

  • riverine areas

The park gets its name from Paul Kruger (in 1926 the British administration named it after Paul Kruger as an act of reconciliation).  It is blessed with an oustanding road network (unlike many other reserves).  Along the park's western border are a number of private reserves (which increase the land available to the park's game).
