Kruger National Park - Crocodile Bridge

Kruger National Park is one of the most popular South Africa attractions, as well as one of the premier safari destinations in the world. It offers a variety of safaris, such as romantic safaris for honeymooners, family safaris and even luxury safaris, all of which provide tourists with the opportunity to observe the Big Five – the elephants, rhinoceros, lions, leopards and buffalo – as they fight for survival in their panoramic natural environment.

Tourists spending holidays in South Africa can also visit Addo National Park, which is the perfect place to enjoy a close-up encounter with herds of African elephants. Over the years, the park’s elephant population has increased from just eleven to several hundreds, joined by other animals like black rhinos and spotted hyenas.
