Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest nature reserves, covering approximately 7580 square miles. It is located in the north-eastern South African provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga. The national park’s history dates back to 1898, when certain areas were protected by the South African government. It became the country’s first official national park and opened to the public in 1926, and it remains to this day one of Africa’s most visited safari destinations. Thanks to this foresight, huge tracts of land are now protected and preserved instead of being commercially exploited and further endangered. Kruger National Park is home to no less than fourteen different biospheres, each with their own selection of native wildlife.
