Kruger National Park is one of the biggest nature conservation areas in the world. The Park covers almost 20,000 km² (or some 7,600 miles²). It spans two provinces: Mpumalanga and Limpopo, and borders two countries: Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
There's something quite humbling about standing at one of the lookouts (the one at Olifants Rest Camp is a personal favourite) when you realise that, in whichever direction you look - from horizon to horizon - is pure, untamed Kruger. Unspoiled natural African bushveld. It certainly adds a new perspective on life.
Kruger National Park has more large mammals than any other park in Africa. Besides the famous Big 5: elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo - there is a wealth of antelope species, warthogs, ostriches, zebra, wildebeest, hyena, cheetah, wild dogs and many smaller animals like otters, mongeese and shrews. Definitely the crown jewel of South African national parks, Kruger has a huge variety of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.
