Top Reasons to Go to Mpumalanga & Kruger National Park

Classic Africa Apart from the tarred roads and rest camps, Kruger Park is the legendary Africa of Dr. Livingstone, the Rain Queen, and Karen Blixen, where countless animals, birds, insects, and reptiles freely roam the plains, rivers, and forests.

Discovery Channel Comes Alive From grasses and flowers to trees and shrubs, from comical dung beetles to gaudy butterflies, from tiny colorful lizards to huge dozing crocodiles, from dainty bushbuck to giant giraffes, from leaping bush babies to languorous lions, you'll marvel at them all.

A Total Escape When you're steeped in the bush, watching that approaching elephant or a pod of harrumphing hippos, you'll forget all the pressures of today's living.

Safari Opulence Stay for a couple of nights at one of Sabi Sand's private game reserves. You're guaranteed luxury accommodation, impeccable service, and probably Big Five sightings. Kids are usually welcome, but check before you book.

Blyde River Canyon The gigantic rocks, deep gorges, and high mountains of the Three Rondawels create one of South Africa's great scenic highlights.
