Posted on April 6th, 2020 by Overland Africa

Africa’s Kruger National Park. The Kruger National Park is arguably the oldest wildlife reserve in the world.  It was proclaimed in 1898, made a World Heritage Site in 2001 and today covers an area the size of Wales. The ‘Kruger area’ and a ‘Kruger safari’ comprise the massive national park itself (it spans a colossal 19 500km² / 7 500mi²) and the park’s surrounding private reserves.
