South Africa holidays
Explore the world-renowned Kruger National Park in search of a huge variety of wildlife, including the Big Five. Aside from leopards, lions, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes, the 20,000 sq km sanctuary is home to a large number of other mammals, reptiles and an array of flora. This national park is also incredibly scenic with flat lowveld plains largely populated by acacia and marula trees. The plains are only interrupted by small sections of beautiful granite kopjes (hills) and rivers or waterholes that provide a water source for the wildlife. Full-day drives can be organised in the park, as well as early morning or afternoon drives. These timings offer the best opportunities for spotting larger predators that tend to hide during the heat of the day.
