Destinations all over the world boast a specialty, a main attraction. South Africa truly has it all.

Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park

At 7,580 square miles, Kruger National Park is the one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Kruger is home to more species of large mammals than any other African game reserve, so it's hard to find a better place on Earth to see the Big Five roaming the bush. Walking safaris and game drives round out the park's offerings to make a visit to Kruger a must on any South African adventure.
