KRUEGER NATIONAL PARK AND RESERVE – SOUTH AFRICA
March 18, 2021
Have you ever dreamed of taking an African Safari? Believe it or not, it is one of the top ten places to visit in the world. Read on about this month’s spotlight: Kruger National Park, the perfect place to take a safari.
The Kruger National Park, described as the flagship of South Africa’s national parks, has one of the largest game reserves in Africa. To get a comparative idea of how big the park is, it is larger than the nation of Israel, slightly smaller than Belgium, and about a third of the size of Ireland.
Its high density of wild animals includes the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalos. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles, and storks. Mountains, bush plains, and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.
The Kruger Park has a hot, sub-tropical climate and most of the year it is hot during the day (above 25 degrees). It’s an all-year-round destination. Game viewing can be at its best during the winter months however the wet summer season brings full water holes, lots of newborn wildlife, and the summer migrant birds arrive.
Whatever time you head out, you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience!
