Kruger Park Wildlife
Say the word safari and you will immediately be asked if you have ever been to the Kruger National Park. The two are synonymous and with well-deserved reason. It was established to help safeguard the wildlife that lived in the area and to date; this impressive and stately park covers an area close to the size of Israel. The range and diversity of species located here is exceptional, including 330 types of trees, 500 bird species and almost 150 animals. A safari here will truly afford visitors a Kruger Park Wildlife experience that is considered to be of the very best in Africa.
Kruger is host to the Big 5, which are among the most dangerous as well as most popular of all species. The Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard are major draw cards to the Kruger Park wildlife experience and viewing of these magnificent creatures is a truly incredible experience. Kruger is also home to the towering Giraffe, the tallest animal on the African savannah. With its lengthy neck supporting its little horned head and its extensive tongue wrapping around twigs and leaves of its favourite trees, this distinct creature is a sight to behold. Herds of Impala are a common sight as they are the most abundant of all the mammals in the park. Kudu, Waterbuck, Bushbuck and Steenbok are among other species of antelope roaming the regions of the Kruger Park. Recreational horn-clashing or duals to determine dominance are displays a visitor would be fortunate to witness.
Bird life is plentiful and wide-ranging with the park being home to the majority of South African raptors. Colourfully named birds like the Blue Waxbill, Green-Backed Heron, Yellow-billed Stork and Scarlet Chested Sunbird create a kaleidoscope of images that will only be fully appreciated when viewed out in the wild.
The captivating Kruger Park wildlife includes creatures from Aardvark to Zebra and everything in between. In the trees, in the water, on land, in the sky and even under a rock, wherever your gaze may fall, you will find a life form worthy to behold.
