Welcome to Kruger National Park
Kruger National Park is one of the best game reserves in Africa, and
one of the oldest in South Africa. If you're a wildlife lover, this
famous park definitely needs to be on your South Africa itinerary.
The park lies about a 3.5- to 4.5-hour drive from Johannesburg and offers
visitors the chance to see the Big Five": lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant,
and rhino, as well as an astounding diversity of other wildlife. It's also
home to San (bushman) rock paintings and archaeological sites. You can
explore Kruger National Park on the large network of sealed roads;
organize a walking safari; or soar over the vast grasslands, gallery
forests, and river systems in a hot air balloon. One of the best things
about Kruger National Park is that the accommodation caters to all
budgets — you can stay in basic campsites, book a thatched bungalow,
or relax in a luxury lodge.
