Kruger National Park in South Africa
Kruger National Park is home to the Big Five (lions, leopards, elephants, bison and rhinos). The best time of year for animal observation is from May to September because it is then the dry season of the African winter when there are no leaves and visibility is excellent. Kruger is one of the oldest and most visited parks in eastern South Africa. It is found in the domesticated African savannah. The main advantages of Kruger are the diversity and abundance of animal species. The giraffe has about 9,000. The buffalo has about 25,000. The organization is perfect. The guides are expert and patient. Every business trip includes food and drink. Offers of excursions and tourist tours are great. Some areas are better for lions, some areas are better for elephants or giraffes and the like. Whether you stay for a few hours and a few days is an unavoidable classic ride in the evening in an elevated safari vehicle.
An early morning walk in the savannah wilderness is a special experience. It is accompanied by walking on tall grass with thorny acacia trees and other herbs in the savanna. Each group of tourists is accompanied by a guide and an outdoor watchdog. One rule is that you should not run if you see a lion, because the lion will chase after you.
The Kruger is 360 kilometers long and has eight official entrances. It is 60 kilometers wide. The area is 20,000 km². With neighboring parks in Zimbabwe and Mozabique, it forms the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Accommodation can be selected (safari lodge, Bed & Breakfast, motels, hotels, private accommodation). Kruger is a wonderful opportunity for families who love to camp. Caravans are extremely popular throughout South Africa.
