Lying in the Province of Mpumalanga and established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, this national park of nearly 2 million hectares, SANParks – Kruger National Park is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies.

Truly the flagship of the South African national parks, Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.

In the northern area you will find Wilderness’ Pafuri Camp in the Makuleke Concession which contains what is said to be one of Kruger’s biodiversity hotspots, home to some of the largest herds of elephant and buffalo, lion, leopard and prolific birdlife along the Luvuvhu River. The biological significance of the area was recognised in 2007 when it was declared a Ramsar Site – a wetland of international importance.

The Mluwati Concession which is home to Imbali, Hamiltons Tented Camp and Hoyo Hoyo, a contemporary interpretation of a traditional Tsonga/Shangaan village and earthy blend of old and new, provides a change in flora from the northern district. To the south is the Lion Sands Concession containing Lion Sands Tinga Lodge and the first concession with traversing rights into the Kruger National Park from the Lion Sands reserve within the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Bordering on the Kruger National Park are a host of Private Game Reserves including Sabi Sand Reserve’s Sabi Sabi, Londolozi, Singita and Ivory Lodge, the Manyaleti Reserve’s Tintswalo Safari Lodge and the Timbavati Reserve’s Kings Camp and Simbavati,  to name but a few.

Johannesburg

Johannesburg, a young city that has yet to celebrate its second centenary, already has an incredible history and legacy.

The Northern Cape

The Northern Cape is a land of many diverse cultures, of frontier history and brave missionaries. It also has countless challenges for the adrenaline junkies, hikers, hunters and 4×4 adventurers. It has impressive parks with endless game and some of the most unique flora in the world.

Much of life and adventure is dependent on the sweeping tide of the Orange River, a 2 000km stretch of natural magnificence dubbed the Kai !Garib (great river) by the Khoisan. With constant ribbons of green along its banks that contrast with the arid surrounds, at some places it can be a 6km-wide, impassable torrent and at others scarcely a stream.

The Kalahari Desert can be likened to a colossal sweeping river of another kind. Its’ red shifting sands that once rippled and moved are now mostly stable and home to hundreds of diverse species of flora and fauna. The Oppenhiemer family lodge Tswalu.

A place of vastness and silence, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (bigger than many countries) extends across much of the Kalahari. Every now and again the unmistakable cry of African fish eagle rings out, or the gut-wrenching roar of a black-maned Kalahari Lion carries across the landscape.

The openness continues to the vast koppie-strewn plains of the Karoo and Namakwa where hardy succulents complement sweet grasses and the clean, clear air is bedecked with stars at night.
