It is quite hard to define the beauty of Kruger National Park in words. The park is a picture of untouched wilderness, where all its attributes are carefully preserved for this generation and the generations to come. The vast park which has an intimidating size of 19,633 square kilometres hosts an astounding variety of species composed of fish, amphibians, mammals and bird. The park is the home of The Big Five: buffalo, leopard, lion, elephant and rhino. In that order, The Big Five is considered the hardest and the most dangerous animals to hunt.  The Big Five may be considered the park’s superstars, but other animals take the center stage as well. The sight of giraffes, elephants, crocodiles and wild dogs and other rare animals are equally exciting.

Apart from feeling and witnessing the wildlife and engaging to safari trips, the most famous activities here include guided game drives, bush walks, and trailing the deep wilderness. The summer season makes the park a picturesque sight and it is the time when numerous baby animals are seen.

Winter season is the best time for game-spotting as it is in this time when the grass is thin and low and the animals are reliant on waterholes. The southern part of the park offers a lot of game viewing opportunities, and apart from The Big Five, there are more interesting animals to see up-close.

As the flagship of Southern African wild parks, Kruger National Park has an excellent road condition that connects a network of camps ranging from big ones to small ones.  Being a major tourist attraction, the park has facilitated a variety of accommodation for park-goers who wish to linger in the vast premises of the park. The guests have great options such as camping sites, luxurious guest houses, safari tents and elegant bungalows. Most of the camps have basic facilities and some even have dining destinations and shopping hub. Because the park is huge and it is impossible to feel, see and experience it in one day, having these accommodations within the park’s premises render convenience to everyone.
