The Kruger National Park
Established in 1926, the iconic Kruger National Park in eastern South Africa is regarded as a must do for anyone visiting South Africa. With an area roughly the size of Israel, the Kruger Park boasts with a wider variety of wildlife than any other nature reserve in Africa.
The park features an astounding 850 kilometers of tarred roads in addition to a further 1 444 kilometers of gravel roads. Most Day visitors will confine themselves to the network of tarred roads, although this requirement only applies to heavy vehicles and vehicles with over 25 seats. Private vehicles are thus able to venture off the beaten track. We advise however to only do this with 4X4 vehicles with a suitable clearance and to always check the weather forecast as the chances of becoming lodged in a donga is very real, especially during the rainy season. As very few day visitors traverse these dirt roads, getting help could take many hours or even days raising the spectre of spending a few scary hours all alone with some seriously dangerous animals.
