The Greater Kruger


The untamed wilderness stirs deep emotions

Visitors experience meaningful and often life-changing encounters with wildlife replacing bustling city life with the tranquil sounds and splendour of untamed nature. Time slows down as your body adjusts to the natural rhythms of the African bush. The Greater Kruger refers to the Kruger National Park itself as well as the private game reserves on its Western border such as the Sabi Sand, Timbavati, Manyeleti and Thornybush Private Game Reserve.

The Kruger National Park is the largest game reserve in South Africa and one of the world’s biggest wildlife sanctuaries. Approximately the same size as Israel or Wales, it covers some 19,485 square kilometres offering a rich diversity of ecosystems that support over 145 mammal species including Lions, Leopards, Buffalos, Elephants and Black Rhinos that make up Africa’s Big 5 and over 500 bird species.
