KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

Situated in the north eastern part of South Africa, in the quaint yet scenic provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo is the country’s’ prize possession – The Kruger National Park. This game park is truly like no other, boasting over 500 species of birds, all of the mammals in the Big 5 in impressive numbers, over 100 reptile species and 50 different types of fish. The vegetation is also unique – from vast stretches of savanna grasslands to thick forests of Marula trees near river beds.

The oldest game park in South Africa, formed in the early 20th century, the Kruger offers once in a life time safari experiences. Other activities in this massive stretch of protected land include hiking, mountain bike trails, guided bush walks, hot air balloon rides, bird watching and helicopter flights over the majestic Blyde River Canyon.

Larger than the whole of Israel, the Kruger National Park is the largest game park in South Africa. It has many impressive conservation projects such as the protection of the very endangered African wild dogs and black rhinos, as well as indigenous tree planting events where local schools and the community are encouraged to become involved.

The Kruger is a great experience for all types of travellers and offers accommodation to suit any sort of budget. Contact Ashanti Travel Online to assist booking your African budget safari, as we specialise in the best of South Africa tours.
