It covers an area of 19,485 square kilometres (7,523 sq mi) in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in northeastern South Africa. The park is the second-largest game reserve in Africa and the largest in South Africa. Kruger was established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld. Now krüger nationalpark is home to an impressive number of species: approximately 2000 plants of which 404 are woody plants and 224 grasses, 53 fish, 34 amphibians, 118 reptiles, 517 birds and 147 mammals.
The park is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park that links Kruger National Park with the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe, and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. It has nine entrance gates and is home to the famous Big Five, the Little Five and the birding Big Six, in addition to a range of fauna and flora unique to the area. A vast network of roads are there to explore on your own (incredibly), guided wildlife activities are everywhere and accommodation is both plentiful and great value.
