The Kruger National Park where nearly 2 million hectares of unrivaled diversity of life forms fuses with historical and archaeological sites – this is real Africa.

The world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares, SANParks – Kruger National Park is unrivaled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.

Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. Man’s interaction with the Lowveld environment over many centuries – from bushman rock paintings to majestic archaeological sites like Masorini and Thulamela – is very evident in the Kruger National Park.

1 of the world's largest colonies of the Cape vulture.

The Marakele National Park in the heart of the Waterberg Mountains, as its Tswana name suggests, has become a 'place of sanctuary' for an impressive variety of wildlife due to its location in the transitional zone between the dry western and moister eastern regions of South Africa. 


Marakele is home to most of the large mammals synonymous with the African bush, including elephant and leopard. Large Predators such as brown hyena, leopard and now also lion, occur in the park. Resident antelope include, sable, kudu, eland, impala, waterbuck, tsessebe and many smaller species. Chacma baboon and vervet monkey are two species to be watched carefully for mischief, particularly around the rest camps.

Marakele hosts one of the world's largest colonies of the endangered Cape vulture. More than 800 breeding pairs nest on the mountain cliffs and groups of them may be seen in the air. Aside from vultures, Marakele is great for checking off many other raptors riding the thermals generated by the Waterberg cliffs.
