“Kruger is one of the best birding destinations in Africa” - Nature Travel Namibia

South Africa's World Famous Park

Views: 280 Visited: Apr 2019 Reviewed: May 09, 2019

One of the greatest and largest national parks in Africa. The world famous Kruger National Park is home to the famous Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino. The park also holds a big concentration of cheetah and wild dog in this magnificent reserve. It’s not uncommon to see these animals while spending a few days in the park.

As a visitor to the park who lives very close to the Kruger it’s my opinion that it holds the greatest diversity of wildlife of any park in Africa. Just the other day we saw the Big 5, cheetah and wild dog all in one day! Truly amazing.

The Parks infrastructure is really good with a great road network and a 4x4 is not necessary.
The Parks camps are all comfortable with a large variety of accommodation available inside and outside the Park. The private reserves, mainly the Sabi Sands, Timbavati and Manyleti border the park to the West and offer some high end accommodation with Private guided safaris on their private concessions. These areas form part of the Greater Kruger.

The Kruger also offers a lot for birdwatchers, with a bird list of over 500 species; Kruger is one of the best birding destinations in Africa. A 10 day trip in the Kruger could easily yield over 300 species of birds; this with the amazing mammal diversity and scenery makes Kruger a must visit for any traveller to South Africa.
