Adventure, Fun and ‘game’ on a Private Tour of Kruger National Park
There is plenty of adventure, fun and ‘game’ to be had when you go on a private tour of Kruger National Park which is the largest game reserve in all of South Africa. It is so big, this park is larger than the country of Israel.

Kruger’s Far North Region: The ecozones are different in this region. A few of the type of animals to be seen are rare bird species, the knocking sand frog, bats, nocturnal bush pig and Sharpe’s grysbok which is extremely rare. Also there are very interesting sandstone formations caused by river flood plains.
