The world-renowned Kruger National Park covers a large and diverse region of Southern Africa. Made up of nearly 2 million hectares the diversity of life forms is unrivalled. Bordering the Limpopo Province, Mpumalanga and Mozambique this reserve has recently opened it's borders to neighbouring reserves joining the Greater Limpopo Transfontier Park. As the park covers such a large area it's terrain varies from lush sub tropical conditions in the south to the more arid grasslands towards the north. With such natural diversity it is no wonder that the park is home to such a variety of species of life. This impressive number of species include a variety of: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals.
