This elephant safari takes place in Kruger National Park, in South Africa. South Africa is a large and diverse country and home to approximately 40 million people. With a size of 1,219,090 square kilometers, it is bigger than Germany, France, Italy, Texas, and California combined.
South Africa is the only country in the world with an entire floral kingdom within its boundaries, the Cape fynbos. It is flanked by the Indian Ocean on the east and the Atlantic on the west. It is bordered by Namibia to the northwest, Botswana and Zimbabwe to the north, and by Mozambique to the northeast.
Nelspruit boasts the world’s oldest caves, the Sudwala Caves, and the absolutely breathtaking God’s Window and Blyde River Canyon. The city is a true gem all South Africans feel proud of. Nelspruit is ideally positioned to allow easy and affordable access to Kruger National Park, beautiful Swaziland, and the vibrant seas of Mozambique.
The Kruger National Park is over 220 miles from north to south; it is impossible to see it all in one trip. To the west of the Kruger Park are a number of large private game reserves that share an unfenced border with the park. Together, the whole reserve is called the Greater Kruger National Park and it spans more than 2.2 million hectares of pristine wilderness.
