South Africa is very well established as a safari destination, with some of Africa's most sophisticated and luxurious safari lodges. South Africa's largest and most famous game reserve is the Kruger National Park, in the north east of the country. Every bit as famous as Tanzania’s Serengeti Plains and Botswana’s Okavango Delta, the Kruger offers excellent game viewing, and plenty of the big five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino). However, the Kruger’s fame comes at a price; this is one of the continent’s most visited parks.
