The Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park is one of the biggest National Parks in Africa it became South Africa’s first national park in 1926. It is situated in the Northeastern tip of South Africa and spans over the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces.
The Kruger’s surface area spans a vast 19 633 km² (7 523 sq mi). Zimbabwe is situated to the north with Mozambique to the east. Kruger is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park joining up with two other parks based in Zimbabwe and Botswana. Many of the surrounding private reserves have removed their fences, allowing wildlife to roam freely between reserves; this move has created a wildlife area like no other. The area plays home to over 140 species of mammals and it is not uncommon to be able to see the big 5 in a trip as well as over 500 bird species.
