Kruger National Park, South Africa
The Kruger National Park is the most well-known nature conservation region in the world. Educational morning game walks and game drives led by a ranger are available as an optional extra. The 4×4 open safari vehicles allow for a better chance of spotting animals on the game drives. For those not taking part in the 4×4 game drive, you will enjoy a game drive through the park in one of the trucks. Another optional sunset game drive is available this evening.
Formed in 1898 to guard the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this National Park of almost two million hectares is unmatched in the variety of wildlife it boasts. The Kruger Park is also a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies. About 145 mammal species, including the big Five, more than 500 bird species, some of which cannot be located anywhere else in South Africa, and 336 tree species can be found in the Kruger National Park. When the very first tourist vehicles drove through the Park in 1927, they created their own camps in thorn-bush enclosures and were required to be armed with weapons in order to guard themselves from predators. During WWII, the Park was closed to the public and was then opened again in 1946, but under new management. Currently the Park is one of the most renowned safari destinations in the world with all the facilities you could expect from a top-notch holiday destination. However, it has thankfully maintained its wild, untouched environment that allows you to experience true Africa.
