Kruger National Park is enormous, spanning roughly 7,332 square miles.
The park's lands are in the South African provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, on the northeastern fringe of the country. It is very close to two other African countries: Zimbabwe and Mozambique
The park is famed for its wild animals, which include African buffaloes, rhinoceroses, lions, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, leopards, hyenas, hippopotamuses, elephants and wildebeests. There are also more than 500 species of birds, plus many reptiles, including crocodiles.
The park has a selection of wilderness trails, some of which are long-distance, multiday trails that go into areas that are seldom visited by humans. These are usually marked animal trails, not man-made trails.
Kruger National Park is in a subtropical area, and summer daytime temperatures can exceed 100 F. The rainy season is between September and May.
Battle at Kruger
The internet video wildlife sensation "Battle at Kruger" was filmed in the park. It depicts a running battle between a herd of buffaloes, a pride of lions and a crocodile.
