The Kruger National Park is the largest park in Africa and including the trans frontier parks from Zimbabwe and Mozambique it becomes 100 000km2, the size of Portugal. It is home to more than 140 mammal species, 49 Fresh water fish species, 114 different kinds of reptiles and 493 bird species. The backdrop varies from bushveld, to park like grasslands to dense bush with more than 23000 plant species identified. During the rainy summer season from December to march the park can turn into a magnificent, emerald green that turns to reds and golds in April. During the winter months of June, July and until the rains begin again the park turns austere, the bush looks more uniform and the animals congregate at strategically placed waterholes. The Kruger National Park was the first ever of its nature in Africa and was instigated by President Paul Kruger in 1884 for the expressed purpose of protecting game farm extinction from hunting. It began small, the original Sabie Game Reserve being 4660km2. It was renamed in 1926 to the Kruger National Park and it is still expanding to this day. Game viewing is primarily from the safety of a closed vehicle but open vehicle game drives. Game walks and 4×4 trails can also be enjoyed, always with the protection of experienced rangers.
