Kruger National Park in South Africa offers travellers "rarely seen" sights, one expert has claimed.
Writing for the Daily Telegraph, Jonathan Wynne-Jones noted that the site, which covers an area equivalent to the size of Wales, provides an excellent opportunity to see big game animals.
He stated: "It has the advantage of being home to the Big Five - lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhino - which not all parks offer and certainly not in such numbers."
During his stay, Mr Wynne-Jones witnessed much of these, including elephants, giraffes, a lioness and cubs and even wild dogs.
According to the specialist, the main attraction for him was viewing a leopard ensconced in a tree, which then darted down into the bushes and away from view.
Last month, American Express Global Foreign Exchange Services revealed that South Africa is becoming a more popular location for holidaymakers.
This is largely due to the country hosting the World Cup next year, the organisation explained.
