Kruger National Park - Safaris & Tours

Kruger National Park - Safaris & Tours

The King of South African game Parks is the Kruger National Park and one of the best game-viewing areas in all of Africa.

The figures speak for themselves: 501 Bird species, 110 reptiles, 51 fish, 31 amphibians, 142 mammal and over 23,100 plant species have been recorded here. The region itself is enormous, extending from the Crocodile river in the South to the Limpopo in the North, from the wooded foothills of the eastern escarpment to the humid plains of the Low veld.

It certainly fulfills most visitors' fantasies of seeing magnificent herds of game roaming across acacia-studded stretches of savannah and, of course, is home to the Big Five.

The park is 120 km wide and over 450 km long, conserving 21,497 sq. km, an area the size of Wales or Israel. Despite its size, it is very well developed, with a good network covering 2600 km of roads and numerous camps, making a Kruger safari relatively hassle free.

The unique and extensive geological formations in South Africa are the origins of our mineral wealth. The Witwatersrand Basin holds a considerable share of the world's gold reserves, as well as some uranium, silver, pyrite and osmiridium.

This basin yields some 98 per cent of South Africa's gold. The Bush veld complex in Mpumalanga and Limpopo produces more than half of the worlds chrome ore. Ores of vanadium, iron, titanium, copper, nickel, and fluorspar are also found here.

South Africa also possesses some of other important mineral reserves

  • The Transvaal System contains more than 80 per cent of the worlds manganese reserves, as well as significant amounts of iron ore.
  • Mpumalanga and Kwazulu Natal have significant coal and anthracite reserves

  • The Northern Cape has significant deposits of zinc ores, as well as copper and lead
  • Diamonds (kimberlitic, alluvial, and marine), as well as titanium, iron and zircon are found allover the country

As a result of these mineral riches, South Africa is one of the worlds largest mineral producers. Most of these minerals are mined for the international market
