Kruger National Park - Unparalleled Bird and Wildlife watching
Dramatic yet accessible, wild Africa yet people friendly, the Kruger is one of the world’s great National Parks. The Kruger has the enviable reputation of having the highest recorded species diversity of wildlife in a game reserve in the whole of Africa. The park is a fantastic destination for birdwatchers, with 517 bird species having been recorded in the park to date. Of these, 253 are residents and 117 are non-breeding migrants. Everyone wishes to see the so-called ‘big five’ – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – but these are just the best known of the park’s 147 species of mammals. African wild dog, cheetah, giraffe and spotted hyaena are just a few of the others. Yet the ‘little five’ – lion ant, elephant shrew, rhino beetle, buffalo weaver and leopard tortoise – are equally fascinating in their own way.
