Kruger National Park
Kruger National Park is South Africa’s flagship national park and one of the most famous safari destinations in Africa. The iconic national park offers visitors 2-million hectares of unrivaled scenic beauty and incredible fauna and flora.
Kruger Park is a state-supported national park that is managed by South African National Parks (SANParks). Visitors have a choice of budget-friendly SANParks accommodation in the popular Kruger Park Rest Camps and luxury 5-star safari lodges in the private concessions.
Greater Kruger is a collection of 7 unfenced protected nature reserves that are home to 18 private game reserves. Famous names include Sabi Sands, Timbavati, Thornybush, Londolozi and MalaMala.
The luxury lodges in Greater Park are unashameably marketed to the high-end traveller. They follow a ‘high quality/limited tourists’ model and offer visitors an exclusive safari experience. Visitors enjoy daily game drives in an open safari vehicle with a professional ranger, luxurious accommodation and world-class service.
What is the difference between Kruger Park and Greater Kruger?
Combined; Kruger National Park and Greater Kruger represent one of the finest and most diverse biospheres in Africa. The vast protected wilderness region is the core of the Kruger2Canyons (K2C) and Vhembe UNESCO Man and Biospheres, and the heart of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area (GLTP Treaty, 2002).
Although Kruger Park and Greater Kruger lie adjacent to each other, they operate as separate entities. Access to the private reserves of Greater Kruger is restricted to paying guests. Access to the private concessions in Kruger Park is also restricted to the public.
The fences around the game reserves in Greater Kruger as well as Kruger’s boundary fence were removed a number of years ago to allow animals to roam freely between the two protected wilderness areas. Timbavati, Manyeleti and Sabi Sands share a 50-kilometre unfenced boundary with Kruger National Park.
