Southern Kruger National Park
What makes Kruger so special is its vastness. This is not a 5000 hectare game ranch; it is 20 000 square kilometer wilderness!
The Kruger National Park is one of the most unspoilt natural eco-systems left in Southern Africa. It is always exciting to view the Big Five... elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo (which incidentally got this title as the five most dangerous
species to hunt). But, don't overlook the other Big Five... giraffe, hippo, cheetah, wild dog and hyena, which make up our Big Ten!
This wildlife area is home to some 33 species of amphibian, 115 species of reptile and 140 species of mammal, including all the big game species that were nearly wiped out by the hunters of the nineteenth century.
Approximately 470 bird species have recorded here, more than half of Southern Africa's total!
Although the dry months of August and September are probably the best for game-viewing, the bush at this time is dry and harsh. Every month has its appeal though.
