The Kruger National Park is the ultimate safari destination. Located about a 6 hour drive North East of Johannesburg, it’s the preeminent wildlife destination in the World, with 147 species of mammal and 517 species of birds. And of course it’s the best place to see the Big 5.
The Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa and one of the world’s biggest wildlife sanctuaries. It is approximately the same size as Israel or Wales and covers 20,720 square kilometres. It extends 350km from north to south and 60km from east to west. The area known as the Great Kruger National Park incorporates many of the Private Game Reserves located on the Western border of the Kruger National Park, such as the Sabi Sand (where Londolozi is situated) and the Timbavati. There are no fences between the Kruger National Park and these private reserves so the animals roam freely between them.
The Kruger’s unspoiled and untamed landscapes stir deep emotions. There is something intensely magical about spending a night under the African stars next to a crackling fire with nothing but the sounds of the bush and the cheer of your family and friends for entertainment.
