Hop on a safari vehicle in the Kruger National Park, South Africa, one of the world’s premier game reserves. The park was established in 1898 to protect big game that had almost been hunted to extinction. A huge number of species are present including elephant, lion, black and white rhino, leopard, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, wild dog, hyena, wildebeest and almost all of South Africa’s species of antelope. The bird life is just as impressive with crowned cranes, bee-eaters and vultures. Finish the day listening to the sounds of the African bush.
