Uncover the Coveted World Within the Kruger Park
The world renowned Kruger Park is a prime destination for wildlife viewing. At a staggering two million hectares of diverse landscape and home to a world of abundant species of flora and fauna, the Kruger Park earns it reputation of arguably being the flagship of game and nature reserves in Southern Africa.
The Park was established in 1898 in efforts to protect wildlife, which of-course is regarded as a national heritage of South Africa. Few places on earth can boast statistics like those of the Kruger Park. The imposing numbers of species loom large. This abundantly endowed natural world lays home to over 147 types of mammals, including the prized ‘Big Five’, over 500 bird species, over 300 types of trees as well as large numbers of fish, amphibians and reptiles.
The Kruger Park adventure safaris are highly acclaimed for providing the ultimate in African safari experiences. Hiking expeditions on walking safaris come complete with expert rangers highly knowledgeable in the area, including indigenous habitats of wildlife and birds. One of the newer camps within the Kruger Park is the Berg en Dal rest camp. The camp is comfortably situated within natural bush and indigenous plants and shrubs. Much of the pristine natural landscape in the area has been preserved. The Malelani Mountain bushveld or woodlands are perfect for attracting grazing wildlife.
Among the species of grazers frequenting the area are the endangered white rhino, kudu, impala and giraffe. Other species that have been known for their regular sightings around the vicinity of the camp are leopards and wild dogs. Bird watching enthusiasts would be happy to note that the camp is home to a great variety of birds.
No visit to Kruger Park is deemed successful without a glimpse of the ‘king of the jungle’. The highly popular member of the ‘Big Five’, lions, prefer the lower plains in the surrounds of Crocodile Bridge Rest Camp located in the south east corner of the park. The game viewing area referred to as the ‘Southern Circle’ is known for the concentration of lions that visit the area.
