The mother ship of South African game parks has about 3 000 km of tarred and gravel roads, most of which are in great con­di­tion and suit­able for the av­er­age light pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cle. The park has nine main gates that al­low easy ac­cess to the dif­fer­ent rest camps. Check gate times on­line be­fore your trip, as they change through­out the sea­son, as you don’t want to get stuck in­side hav­ing to pay a penalty. For en­thu­si­as­tic (and bud­ding) or­nithol­o­gists, the park boasts a whop­ping 517 bird species, in­clud­ing the lap­pet-faced vul­ture, mar­tial ea­gle, sad­dlebilled stork, kori bus­tard and Pel’s fish­ing owl, to name a few. The Big Five is also found at Kruger, which has 147 species of large mam­mals, more than any other game re­serve on the con­ti­nent.
