Greater Kruger National Park, is a joint venture between the Kruger National Park and the Associated Private Nature Reserves. Together they have an area of more than 20.000 KmĀ². There are many private run game reserves within the region, and also privately owned holiday accommodation.

Incorporated in the greater area is Krugar National Park, which lies to the East and North of two South African Provinces, Mpumalanga and Limpopo. In the north is Zimbabwe, and to the east is Mozambique. It is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, which links Kruger National Park with the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe, and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.

A region bridging between the Kruger to Canyons is an area designated by UNESCO as an International Biosphere Reserve. This is very important, not only to Africa as a whole, but for the world because as the worlds human population grows, it becomes increasingly more critical that the worlds animals have somewhere natural for protection, and survival.

Krugar National park has 9 entrances that allow entrance to the different areas. These gates are known as Paul Kruger, Numbi, Malelane, Crocodile Bridge, Punda Maria, Orpen, Phalaborwa, Phabeni and Pafuri. The entrances are guarded for your protection, and the wildlife's.

The activity that attracts most visitors to Krugar is the game drives. These are typically orchestrated by a guide who will take you out in an open top Land Rover. The drives are first thing in the morning, and also at night, these are the times best considered for animal watching. The big five, which reference, Lion, Rhino (Black Rhinoceros and White Rhinoceros), Elephant, Leopard, and Buffalo are the main prizes for shooting (with your camera of course). Of these, the Leopard is the hardest to spot in the wild.
