No trip to South Africa is complete without a trip to the over 110-year old Kruger National Park, where visitors have the chance to see nearly 2 million hectares of open space in all its natural beauty. Perfect for both day trips and extended safaris, it is certainly the case that the longer you stay the more you will see, and there's so much to see! 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals make their home in the park, meaning every visit is sure to be an exciting one, filled with unforgettable sights, but be warned that there is a limit on the number of vehicles allowed to enter the park each day, so advance booking may be advisable; however, this limit is usually only reached on public holidays. There are nine entrance gates to the park, but the closest to Nelspruit and Pretoria is the Malelane Gate on the R570 off the N4 in Malelane.
