Kruger National Park holidays

Kruger is South Africa’s premier reserve covering an immense slice of Lowveld territory – 20,000 square kilometres, about the size of Wales. It lies in the savanna-type bushveld between the Crocodile River to the south, the Limpopo River to the north and Mozambique to the east. The park was established in 1898 and is the oldest and largest in South Africa. Within its boundaries it protects not only the ‘big five’ but a host of other animals, birds and plant-life; the size of the park also means there is a wide range of landscapes and eco-systems. There are numerous privately owned game reserves bordering the park forming the Greater Kruger Park. There are no fences and the animals roam freely throughout the whole area. All visitors are charged a daily conservation fee to visit the park, which must be paid locally.
