Kruger National Park
Kruger National Park, in northeastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
Two rivers, the Limpopo in the north and the Crocodile in the south, act as natural boundaries, with several others winding through the park. There’s a vast network of paved roads and marked trails that visitors can explore on their own or with guides. Numerous archaeological sites include ancient rock paintings, a Stone Age village and a 16th-century village. Accommodations range from tents to cottages to lodges, but are all traditionally very basic. Private reserves adjoining the park and private concessions within offer luxurious lodges and off-road game-viewing tours.
