Luxury in Kruger National Park: Memories made in the Kruger last forever

Lying in the heart of the Low veld in Mpumalanga, is a nature reserve like no other. Its atmosphere is so exclusive that it allows those who enter its vastness, to engage themselves in the unspoilt and infinite wilderness, true to Africa .Being the largest game reserve in South Africa by far, the Kruger National Park is about the same size as Belgium. Nearly 2 million hectares of land that stretch for 350 kilometres from north to south, is dedicated to an unforgettably dramatic wildlife experience. Certainly it is in line with the best in Africa and is the pride of the country's national parks. So, if you have ever thought of watching the full moon from the wildest and most remote part of the Kruger National park, whilst listening to the roar of lion and the laughing of hyena, this dream can come true if you plan a visit to the more northern part of the Kruger. Some of the luxury rental villa accommodation available, is situated high on a hill overlooking the Luvuvhu river valley. You will be offered a traditional safari experience with a variety of vegetation, interesting game viewing and outstanding bird watching. But you'll have a uniquely beautiful, informative and adventurous bush experience and are bound to see lion, and maybe leopard, at close quarters. Apart from large herds of elephant and buffalo, guests will be able to see Nyala and over 350 recorded bird species. There is an airstrip nearby, thus travelling by plane from Johannesburg Central Airport is a fast and convenient option to get there.

The Kruger National Park lies across the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo in the north of South Africa, just south of Zimbabwe and west of Mozambique. The northern regions of the Kruger National Park, remained inaccessible for a long time due to the land claim of the Makuleke tribe. New legislation ruled that any change within this huge wilderness should follow strict eco guidelines and all the guides, game rangers and lodge staff are local Makuleke people. One of the most enjoyable things to do after a good night's rest in your private villa, is to go on an early morning game drive, accompanied by a competent game ranger. Always have your binoculars and camera at hand for that unexpected kill you might experience when least expected. Different species of trees can be found here: knob thorns, baobabs, fever trees, marula and mopane. Under the trees you will often find the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo), the Little Five (buffalo weaver, elephant shrew, leopard tortoise, ant lion and rhino beetle) and the Birding Big Six (ground hornbill, kori bustard, lappet faced vulture, martial eagle, pel's fishing owl and saddle bill stork). In the Kruger you will also discover more species of mammals than in any other Game Reserve in Africa. There are also a number of tropical aspects, as part of the region lies in a rain shadow and a riverine forest lies along the banks of the Luvuvhu River. A picnic site on the river bank provides hours of splendid bird viewing and relaxing.

Activities

You visit the Kruger Park to enjoy the remoteness, tranquillity and indigenous bush, the never ending savanna under the immense blue sky, the beautiful trees and watching the sun go down flaming red while you sip a glass of ice cold Amarula Cream. You rent a luxury villa in the Park to see the variety of African wildlife in their unspoilt natural surroundings. Where else in the world is it possible to spot a lion stalking an antelope, elephant showering themselves at a water hole, baby baboons playing pranks on each other, majestic rhino grazing on the plains and a herd of buffalo crossing a road in a cloud of dust --- all in one day? The luxury facilities of the private villa will make for a holiday to be remembered: tasty cuisine, professional spa and beauty treatments, outdoor Jacuzzi with a view.

Some of the camps and the private lodges have swimming pools, wonderful for cooling down and for exercise. The gym, with a view of the African outdoors, takes a physical workout to a whole new level. Casual strolling around is invigorating while a hiking trip in the wild, chaperoned by an experienced game ranger, is a truly unique experience.
