Location

South Africa

South Africa is larger than Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, and the Netherlands combined. It has the world's second largest controlled game reserve, the Kruger National Park. South Africa is also known as 'A World in One Country' due to the contrast in landscapes, climate, and the people. Approximately 55 million diverse people make up the Rainbow Nation.

Almost all citizens expect to be known as South Africans. There are 11 official languages. English and Afrikaans are widely spoken. French, Italian, and German are spoken by staff members in many of the larger hotel, guesthouses, and shops. The major native South African languages are Zulu, Xhosa, and Tswana.

South Africa displays a distinct atmosphere of vibrancy with a cosmopolitan mood. After the 2010 World Cup, visitors to South Africa consider South Africa safer and more beautiful than many of the current highly recommendable holiday destinations in the world. This beautiful country with its wonderful climate and friendly people fall into the category of a tourist destination that must be visited.

South Africa has an enormous variety of flora from forests to bushlands and flower paradises to sandy deserts and an amazing variety of wildlife, ranging from the famous Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhino). It has over 900 classified species of birds, 5000 species of spider, and more than 100 varieties of snakes.

Kruger National Park

Kruger National Park opened to the general public in 1927 and has a rich natural and cultural history that can be traced back to early mankind. It is undoubtedly one of the world’s greatest game parks and home to the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, and elephant), a term that was originally used by the hunters and refers to five of the greatest of Africa’s wild animals as well as the most dangerous to hunt.

The Big Five are regarded by many as a privileged to view during a visit to the Kruger National Park. Although seeing the Big Five is generally the objective of most visitors, there is much more on offer. Kruger National Park boasts approximately 147 mammal species (including the Big Five), more than 500 bird species, 114 reptile species, over 49 fish species, 34 amphibian species, 227 butterfly species, and 336 tree species.

The park's management plan in controlling elephant numbers initially included culling. However, this practice was stopped in 1994 and translocation were introduced. The park's habitat can only sustain about 8,000 elephants. Kruger supports packs of the endangered African wild dog, of which there are thought to be only about 400 in the whole of South Africa.

Flight of the Eagle Safaris & Tours has been visiting the Kruger National Park for many years. Traveling and experiencing the diversity, and especially the wildlife has always been their passion. It gives them great pleasure sharing such a passion and knowledge of the country's natural beauty with the appreciative traveler and they would love to take you there!
