Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa, covering about 7500 square miles (220 miles N to S) and 40 miles wide. It is huge, so we obviously just got a glimpse of its fascinating sights. We entered from the south side after crossing the South Africa/Swazi border uneventfully. We timed it so we could do the sunset drive with a guide - what an experience. We broke up into various groups and each had our own successes, but our vehicle had a lot of large animal sightings. We came back at nighttime so we also got a night view of many large animals, saw a classical African sunset, the southern cross and milky way from a deep dark vantage point. Perfect weather - warm, not hot. Amazing!
