Kruger Parks offers a wildlife experience that ranks amongst some of the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the rich wildlife of the Lowveld, the national park encompasses almost 2 million hectares populated with over a thousand different species indigenous to Southern Africa.
The area also reflects the changing influence of mankind with bushman paintings and the archaeological sites of Masorini and Thulemela, which have led to great discoveries about mankind’s past.
The Kruger National Park is completely open to the public and is accessible by car.
Kruger lies in the hot lowveld, a subtropical section of the Eastern and Northern Transvaal that abuts Mozambique.
The park is 80 kilometres (50 miles wide) and 320 kilometres (200 miles long), stretching from Zimbabwe and the Limpopo River in the north to the Crocodile River in the south.
The Travel Desk at The Westcliff is able to arrange self-drive as well as fully-escorted trips to the Kruger National Park for hotel guests.
