The Kruger National Park was established in 1898 to conserve the Lowveld wildlife by then president of the South African republic (Transvaal), Paul Kruger.
This massive national park lies across the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in the north-east of South Africa. In recent times, fences have come down to allow game to freely roam in much the way it would have centuries ago. The Kruger Park offers good infrastructure that includes picnic sites, rest camps, waterholes, hides and is well suited as a self-drive safari destination. There are a few private concessions within the park where private lodges are able to offer an exclusive kruger lodge safari experience away from the general public.
