The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares which can be separated into 2 distinct areas: The Southern and Northern Kruger.
The Southern Kruger Park is defined by it’s borders with the Sabie and Crocodile rivers, and the country of Mozambique to the east. Visitors to Southern Kruger Park can expect to see the wealth of game that the whole of Kruger supports, including Africa’s famous Big Five (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and the very illusive leopard); giraffe; zebra; buck of every shape, size and description; cheetah and a host of smaller cats; hippo; bushpig and warthog; hyena and the endangered wild dog as well as hundreds of species of birds, amphibians and reptiles. But included in this long list of wonderful wildlife is the rare and reclusive white Rhino. It is in the Southern Kruger that most sightings of this gracious, endangered animal occur.
