Big Cat Safari: Kruger & Sabi Sand Reserve
South Africa’s Greater Kruger National Park offers undoubtedly the most readily accessible big cat safari experience in Southern Africa, as well as some of the finest game viewing and photographic opportunities. This is especially true when it comes to the big cats and other magnificent wildlife like as elephants and rhinos, all to be seen on this big cat safari in the Greater Kruger National Park.
Covering a huge swathe of remarkably diverse woodland savanna in the north-east corner of the country, this park and the adjacent private reserves are easily accessible by road and air. Unlike some other large parks in the sub-region, there’s no need for expensive charter flights or bone-jarring road journeys and, after landing at Skukuza Airport, one can be on your Safari in Kruger Park and game viewing minutes later!
The park is some 350 kms long from north to south and offers a wonderful array of different types of landscapes, from the well-wooded hills and rock outcrops of the south-west to the open basalt plains in the central region, and is home to over 500 bird species, 137 mammal species, 119 reptile species, 33 species of amphibians and nearly 50 species of fish.
The big cat safari that venture into the Sabi Sand Game Reserve offers a cherry-on-the-top experience, with close-up encounters with big cats that have been known to be highlights of a lifetime for participants. Photographic opportunities abound and keen photographers are known to return from a 9 day tour with 10 000 plus images stored on their memory cards and hard drives.
