Natural habitats have drastically changed in South Africa due to human influence and habitation. As a result of this, National Parks and Game Reserves were established in the 19th century to offer sanctuary to endangered species.
Overview of Cape Town Safaris
In 1898 President Ohm opened the Kruger National Park. This park is in the northern region of South Africa and has a length of 320 km and is 64 km wide. You should plan at least a week for this visit in order to enjoy the beauty of this park to its fullest. In the park you will be able to see herds of buffalo, elephant and hippo, as well as lions, cheetahs and other predators. The best time to view these stunning animals is during the mornings and evenings at one of the 145 water holes.
