Visit Greater Kruger
Kruger National Park, located to the north of Johannesburg, is the largest reserve in South Africa and has more animals than other reserve in the country.
At almost two million hectares, it is one of the largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, and the area's unfenced plains, forests and hills are home to the Big Five, huge migrating herds of animals and excellent birdwatching opportunities.
The park represents your best chance to see the Big Five in Africa, offers wide-open spaces (it covers an area the size of Wales) and offers the ‘real Africa' experience.
