KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

Kruger National Park, in north-eastern South Africa, is one of Africa’s largest game reserves.

 The park was first proclaimed in 1898 as the Sabie Game Reserve by the then president of the Transvaal Republic, Paul Kruger. He first proposed the need to protect the animals of the Lowveld in 1884, but his revolutionary vision took another 12 years to be realised when the area between the Sabie and Crocodile Rivers was set aside for restricted hunting.

James Stevenson-Hamilton (born in 1867) was appointed the park’s first warden on 1 July 1902.                                                              On 31 May 1926 the National Parks Act was proclaimed and with it the merging of the Sabie and Shingwedzi Game Reserves into the Kruger National Park.

The first motorists entered the park in 1927 for a fee of one pound.

Kruger is one of the premier game-watching destinations in the world. Approximately 147 mammal species occur in the park. It is possible to see all the classical African big game, including elephant, black and white rhino, hippopotamus, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, warthog and many antelope species. Large carnivores include lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena. 

The Kruger National Park covers  nearly 20,000 km² (8,000 square miles) of undisturbed savanna, woodland, riverine forest and craggy mountain ranges.  Kruger is comparable in size to Wales in the UK, the USA state of New Jersey, or Slovenia in Europe and larger than Israel and Netherlands.

Because of the sheer size of the Park, it is only to be expected that the vegetation changes as you travel from north to south, which has implications on the game viewing opportunities.

There are 336 tree species in the park, 53 fish, 34 amphibians, 118 reptiles, 517 bird species which represents 60% of the birding population in South Africa.

Kruger National Park is one of the flagships of South Africa and will undoubtedly bring you as close to nature as possible.

The Kruger National Park can be divided into 4 main zones and 16 macro ecozones. 

The southern region cover the lower region of Kruger and runs most of the way all along the Sabie river with excellent game viewing with a high population cats in general making it the tourism mecca of Kruger.

The central region stretches from the northern side of the Sabie river to the Olifants river and and is widely acclaimed to be the most game-rich area with the most beautiful scenery. The vegetation is mainly grass plaines with woodland areas and river valleys. Lots of general game like the zebra, blue wildebeest and giraffe wander over these plains and therefor our main predator the lion are very active in this area as well as the slender build, vastest predator on the planet, the cheetah.

The northern region, north of the Olifants River is predominantly mopane veld and stretches to the Tropic of Capricorn. The mopane is a favorite of the Elephant and therefor you will encounter lots of special elephant sightings in this area as well as buffalo.

The Far Northern region extends from the Tropic of Capricorn right up to the Limpopo River (which is also the international boundary between Zimbabwe and South Africa)

This is the least visited area of the Kruger Park and the area is mainly arid and flat, apart from around Punda Maria, where localised rainfall allows tall mopane trees to flourish in abundance.  North of here, craggy sandstone hills dominate the landscape, made even more impressive by the huge baobab trees.

Game viewing is best along the river systems, and this is a great area to see nyala, elephant, buffalo, cheetah and leopard.  Bird-watching is also particularly good too.
