Kruger National Park
Proclaimed a NP in 1898 by the then president Paul Kruger
20'000 km² of wilderness in eastern South Africa
Borders with private reserves
The Kruger National Park was proclaimed a national park in 1898 by the then president Paul Kruger. Today, it is as immensely popular with South Africans as it is with visitors from around the world.
The 20’000 km² park is home in its west to a number of private nature reserves, with luxurious lodges and a high concentration of wildlife. When the civil war in Mozambique ended, fences were partly removed to the east, allowing animals to wander freely into Mozambique (Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park). A sighting of the big five (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and rhino) is almost guaranteed if you visit one of these private lodges.
