Elephant in the Acacia, Kruger National Park.
Driving the length of the Kruger offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa. The park has incredibly diverse fauna and flora in South Africa and your 350-kilometre journey from south to north traverses a wide variety of biomes: from acacia thornveld and silver-cluster-leaf sourveld in the south to mopane scrub veld and sandveld in the north.
The Kruger is home to an unparalleled diversity of animals and is maintained by one of the world’s most sophisticated wildlife management systems. The park boasts 34 types of amphibian, 116 different reptilian species, 505 species of birds and 147 mammals species, 300 different types of trees, 1980 species of plants and 49 species of fish.
