Kruger National Park Guide - South Africa

The Kruger National Park; a magical piece of Africa that is so vast and beautiful that it can consume your very being, day after day for months on end without ever running out of new surprises. When on a safari tour in the Kruger National Park, one is immediately engulfed by a powerful aura and the realisation; "I am with nature in its purest form".

I have my favourite roads and areas, yet, it is with years of visits that I can honestly say, "not one road or area of the park has failed to deliver a unique experience". This "Eco Travel Guide to the Kruger National Park" is thus written with deliberate equality - all roads are equal, for in a flash, you never know what you will witness anywhere!

The Kruger National Park is 380km long and at an average of 60km wide covers nearly 2 million hectares, 1 948 500 ha to be exact. The many kilometres of quality tarred and gravel roads that criss-cross the park, bring one into contact with almost every form of the wildlife found within its boundaries. The Kruger National Park is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and is a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies and is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.
