The Kruger National Park boasts an astounding array of wildlife and habitats. Its diverse wildlife includes the renowned Big Five: elephants, lions, leopards, African buffalo, and both black and white rhinos, as well as African wild dogs, one of the most endangered carnivores in Africa.
Cheetahs, hippos, giraffes, crocodiles, warthogs, and a huge range of antelope species also call the Kruger home. Endangered ground pangolin, aardwolf, suni antelopes and roan antelopes offer some of the rarer sightings when you tour the Kruger Park.
With more than 500 bird species, the Kruger is a birders’ paradise. Rare bird species include ground hornbills, Pel’s fishing owls, kori bustards, martial eagles, saddle-billed storks and lappet-faced vultures. Night drives offer a chance to see nocturnal creatures like owls, night jars, servals, bushbabies, aardvarks, porcupines, genets and bat-eared foxes. You may also see lions, spotted hyenas and other predators hunting!
