The Kruger National Park has the largest diversity of large mammals of any reserve in the world, and is the easiest place on earth to see “The Big 5”, predominantly due to the highest density of rhino & leopard populations in the world.

South Africa also has an astonishing variety of marine life, and has the best place in the world to view whales from shore, and to swim with great white sharks. The world’s largest migration of Ocean life (sardine run) occurs here, and is one of the two largest migrations of any kind on earth.
