A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK & SABI SANDS
The Mpumalanga province is dominated by the Kruger National Park and the adjacent private game reserves of The Sabi Sands, Timbavati and Manyeleti which make up the Greater Kruger National Park – one of the oldest, largest and finest National Parks in the world and home to the Big Five.
The iconic Kruger National Park spreads across two provinces and shares unfenced boundaries to the north, east and west. This massive park forms part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park which, along with Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou and Mozambique’s Limpopo National Park are larger than some European countries.
Kruger is of course best known for its varied landscapes and diversity of wildlife species; 336 tree, 49 fish, 34 amphibian, 114 reptile, 507 bird and 147 mammal species including the famed Big Five namely lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo.
WHEN TO VISIT THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK & SABI SANDS
Most of the park lies in the Lowveld and enjoys a sub-tropical climate, with summer months hot and humid. The rainy season from November to March sees the bush lush and alive, with babies being born – closely followed by increased predator activity. During winter months of May to August, game viewing is easier as the bush is less dense and the game congregates around the waterholes. The park is a year round destination, with strong sightings throughout the year.
