Kruger National Park
The world-famous Kruger National Park is South Africa’s largest game reserve and one of the finest wildlife sanctuaries on the planet.
The Kruger National Park has nearly two million hectares of unfenced African wilderness, in which more mammal species roam free than in any other game reserve. A leader in environmental management, the Kruger National Park offers visitors fantastic Big Five sightings, as well as viewing of endangered game such as the African wild dog and birdwatching of over 507 bird species.
Within the Kruger National Park lies &Beyond Ngala Private Game Reserve, the first private game reserve to be incorporated into this famous park and bordering the Kruger are other renowned private reserves such as the Sabi Sands and the Timbavati Game Reserve. The Kruger National Park is easily accessible via Johannesburg (only a four-hour drive away) and is near to scenic towns such as Graskop, White River and Pilgrims rest.
