What you might get to see in Kruger National Park...

Established in 1898 to protect the wildlife of the South African Lowveld, the Kruger National Park of today offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. The Park has currently a size of nearly 2 million hectares and is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.
Not all of them are in the video, but the most common ones plus some kinda rare sightings.

How  to get there?
You can either join an organised tour starting in Johannesburg, Pretoria or Nelspruit or you can rent a car and explore the Park on your own (route description to Nelspruit). TravelComments.com recommends organised tours in to the park for several reasons. The most obvious one is that qualified tour guides simply know the park way better than a first time visitor. They know where the animals are, they know why they are in certain habitats etc.. To us reason enough to join an organised tour to the world famous Kruger National Park and not to do it on your own.
