As the main jewel in the crown of South Africa’s natural heritage, it’s no surprise that the Kruger National Park attracts over one million visitors from around the world each year.
The Kruger Park lies across two South African provinces – Limpopo and Mpumalanga – spanning nearly 20 000km². That’s bigger than the smallest country in the world (Vatican City), nearly the same size as Israel, and nearly a third of the size of the Republic of Ireland.
Well over 255 archaeological sites and ruins are scattered throughout the park, providing fascinating insight into our Stone and Iron Age brethren. There are 125 recorded rock art sites, while cultural artefacts from between 100 000 and
30 000 years ago have been uncovered.
