The key to enjoying your safari excursion in South Africa is to choose a destination that will maximize your exposure to the natural wonders the country has to offer. At nearly 2 million hectares, and considered the bellwether of the South African wildlife parks, Kruger National Park offers visitors a lifetime of experiences, all of which are easily booked through Nyati Safari.
Kruger National Park was established in 1898 and is overseen by the South African National Parks (SANParks) organization. Throughout the park, SANSParks has established numerous environmental management initiatives that place the park as a world-renowned leader in conservation efforts. Throughout the park, more than 300 archaeological sites have been discovered, among them those at Masorini and Thulamela, which reveal to travelers the rich history of human interaction and expansion through the region.
Unsurpassed in biological diversity, Kruger National Park is also home to South Africa’s “Big Five” – animals that tourists and conservationists from around the world flock to South Africa to see. Visitation to the park, however, is highly regulated. Companies like Nyati Safari offer travelers the guarantee of being able to enter the park and their safari packages, in addition to bushwalks around the Nyati safari grounds, include an additional full day in Kruger National Park. During the “Big Five” game drive through the bushland in open-top Jeeps – a privilege only granted to a limited number of tourist agencies – passengers can enjoy breakfast as the sun rises over the bushland. What follows is as breathtaking an experience as can be imagined.
The open-top jeeps allow passengers the true safari experience as they are flooded with the sights, sounds, and smells of South Africa. Kruger National Park encourages visitors to not only seek out the “Big Five” – lions, leopards, rhinos, buffaloes, and elephants – but also the Little Five – the buffalo weaver bird, the elephant shrew, the leopard tortoise, the ant lion, and the rhino beetle. As travelers travel through Mopane Bush, they have the chance to see impalas, kudus, and antelopes. Traveling south through the central savannah, gnus, zebras, and cheetahs wander, and once travelers enter the Bush Willow in the south, they will be treated with sights of giraffes, hyenas, and rare white rhinos.
These are just some of the natural wonders you’ll experience during your trip through Kruger National Park as part of Nyati’s Safari experience packages. With a little pre-planning and plenty of openness to the experience, you could leave South Africa with a lifetime’s worth of memories. Let Nyati Safari’s travel advisor’s help you tailor your travel experience and guarantee you see everything South Africa’s crown jewel has to offer.
