The Kruger National Park.

The Kruger National Park is the second-largest game reserve in Africa and the largest in South Africa. We make many Kruger National Park reservations each year for this, the flagship of South African National Parks. Spanning 360km, North to South, and 65km from East to West, the scenic beauty of Limpopo is situated to the west, the lush Mpumalanga to the south and with Zimbabwe to the North. It has nine entrance gates and is home to the famous Big Five, the Little Five and the birding Big Six, in addition to a range of fauna and flora unique to the area. The reserve is made up of numerous locations which provide ample accommodation in a range of lodges, tented camps and self-catering chalets. Also available are a wide variety of tour options and safaris around the distinct and contrasting landscapes of the 18,989 square kilometre area of the park. Some popular destinations within the park include Lower Sabie, Punda Maria and the Crocodile Bridge rest camp. Lower Sabie Rest Camp, one of the most preferred destinations for Kruger Park reservations, is situated on the banks of the perennial Sabie River and surrounded by leafy riverine vegetation, like the sycamore fig, and set against the backdrop of the Lebombo-Mountain-skyline. Terraces of tidy white bungalows surround the luxurious safari tents of Punda Maria, where fascinating colonial history makes campfire stories a staple activity. Surrounded by a wealth of indigenous vegetation, you’ll also find excellent bird watching opportunities.
