The Greater Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in South Africa. Covering an area of over 19,000km, its natural landscape of mountains, tropical forests and bush plains are home to nearly 150 mammals (including elephant, lion, rhino, leopard and buffalo), 100 reptiles and over 500 species of bird.

There are several different ways to experience this wonderful reserve, not solely the standard safari jeep. Why not take an exhilarating bush walk instead and follow the footprints of the phenomenal creatures.

For those wanting more of a private experience, Sabi Sands game reserve is a private game reserve for visitors wanting a longer safari experience. This means no day visitors are authorised in the reserve. It shares open borders with the Kruger National Park, ensuring the animals and wildlife can wander where they please without the restriction of fences. Sabi Sands proves to be particularly liked by large herds of animals, and leopard spottings are frequent here, and with the rangers being allowed to safari off road (Kruger National Park does not allow this), you can quite literally get a deeper safari experience!
