The Kruger National Park is one of South Africa’s most sought-after safari and tourist destinations and is one of the world’s most diverse and abundant nature and game reserves. It offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in the world. Established in 1898 by Paul Kruger to protect the wildlife of the South African lowveld, it is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.
