Kruger National Park is a major highlight of South Africa safaris. Covering nearly 7,720 square miles of terrain, Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa. Now more than a century old, this preserve was one of the world's first wildlife conservation areas.
Within Kruger's scenic surroundings, you'll be amid roughly 150 species of mammals (including six cat species), more than 500 species of birds and more than 300 species of trees. Mountains, rivers, waterfalls and forests provide a stunning, peaceful backdrop for the animals, including the "Big Five" -- lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes.
