The Kruger National Park, currently covers an area of 19 685Km²/12 230m². This is the African continents most diverse and successful wildlife sanctuary. This vast track of wilderness is a model of successful management and exists by the rules of sustainable conservation.
Beside the frequently seen “Big Five” (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo) there are 147 other mammal species, over 574 bird species and 114 reptile species. To this add a huge topographical and floral variation (17 different eco-zones), making Kruger National Park a unique haven for wildlife, flora and related species.
In May 2002 South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe reached an agreement to formally merge an area of some 35 000 Km²/21 746m² to form the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Park. Fences between Kruger National Park and Mozambique have been removed and animals relocated back into this area. This area is now accessible either through the border post near Pafuri picnic site or the new Giriyondo border post between Mopani and Shingwedzi Camps.
Kruger National Park has opened 4×4 vehicle one day adventure trails, the Madlabantu, Mananga, Nonokani and Northern Plains Trails. These day trails are not on the normal tourist routes and add another dimension to animal viewing.
