As the biggest wildlife reserve in South Africa, the Kruger National Park covers vast expanses of both Mpumalanga and the Limpopo provinces in the northern parts of South Africa. The park spans some 2-million hectares stretching to the Mozambique border in the east and shares unfenced borders with many private and provincial parks in the west. Along the park boundaries large areas of the fence have been removed to allow for a free flow of wildlife between the park and the numerous adjoining private game reserves such as Timbavati and Sabi-Sand, and provincial game reserves such as Manyaleti and Letaba Ranch.
Here the Big Five roam freely and wildlife from virtually all of southern Africas antelope species to giraffe, hippo, cheetah, hyena, wild dog, warthog, monkeys and almost 500 type of birds can be seen and appreciated in their natural habitat. All in all the entire park is home to 147 mammals including predators and prey.
