South Africa offers safari experiences in abundance. The Kruger National Park is one of the largest and best-known game reserves on the African continent. With a total area of almost 20 000 square kilometres, it equals the size of a small country.

The Park is one of South Africa's most renowned conservation areas and has a proud history of nurturing biodiversity. Five distinct vegetation zones, from open grassland to riverine forest, provide habitats for different species of wildlife in different parts of the Park.
