Nothing comes close to experiencing wild beasts in their natural habitat. Be it the majestic tiger taking a lousy walk in the jungle like he just doesn’t care or a ferocious leopard sprinting to catch his prey, witnessing wildlife in its natural form is a thrilling experience. There are a number of national parks and sanctuaries in the world where you can take a safari to see animals in the wild. It would be fair to say that the Kruger National Park in South Africa is one of the best of them all. Located in the northeastern part of the country, the Kruger National Park was established in 1926. It is spread across over 19000 sq. Km extending 360 kilometers from north to south and 65 kilometers from east to west. The park is home to a variety of wildlife species. It is especially famous for its high density of the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffaloes. It is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. The Kruger National Park is part of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere which is a UNESCO site. Different camps enter the park through its nine gates. A safari here is on the bucket list of many a wildlife lover.  (ALSO SEE Tourist Has A ‘Jurassic Park’ Moment When Elephant Confronts Safari Jeep in South Africa’s Kruger National Park) These stunning Kruger National Park photos show why you must visit this park at least once in your lifetime.
