Day 1 - 2
From Johannesburg - South Africa’s commercial capital - we travel via the Panoramic region of Mpumalanga with its beautiful scenery and dramatic escarpment views, to South Africa’s most famed national park - Kruger. The fences between the park’s borders and private game reserves on the fringes of Kruger have been taken down to form Greater Kruger and the park’s animals are free to roam the whole area. Kruger and Greater Kruger cover over 24,000 sq km and is home to an incredible wealth of African animals from the dwarf mongoose to Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo). There is also an incredible diversity of birdlife and flora to be discovered. We spend two nights within the Kruger area and take game drives across the savannah to glimpse some of the wildlife that inhabits the park.
