The second largest game reserve, the Kruger National Park is south Africa’s flagship Game reserve. Originally the Kruger Park was the Sabi Game Reserve, and it was only in 1927 when the National Parks Act was declared that the Kruger National Park came into existence (by merging the Sabi Game Reserve with the Shingwedzi Game Reserve). In 1927 the first motorists drove through the park for a mere pound.
Today the park spreads across 2 of the country’s provinces (Limpopo and Mpumalanga) and spans an awesome 19,633 square kilometres (7,580 sq mi) . Just the drive from North to South of the park is 60 kilometres (220 mi), while east to west is only 5 kilometres (40 mi). It is also home to Africa’s Big Five, the birding Big Six, as well as thousands of indigenous fauna and flora. Day guests to the park can visit between 5 - 18:30 in the South African Summer...

For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
