South Africa tours and safaris are nearly synonymous with the incredible Kruger National Park, located in the north-east of South Africa.
It is one of the largest national parks in the world, with a sub tropical climate and a rainy season from September till May, but the best time to visit is the dry winter season when the chances of contracting malaria are significantly lower.
All of the Big Five game animals are represented at Kruger. Here is an incredible Youtube video filmed at Kruger National Park that recently went viral with over 75 million views, The Battle At Kruger in which safari travelers witness confrontation between a herd of cape buffalo, lions, and a crocodile.
Some of the best safari lodges of Kruger National Park were recently awarded by Adventure Life tours, read about them here: South Africa Safari Lodges. Many lodges incorporate tours, but are most importantly situatied right within the National Park.
