Southern Kruger - Kruger National Park

This area encompasses about a fifth of the Kruger National Park, and is located between the Crocodile River in the South (the Park's border) and the Sabie River. This is very much lion country, and is also well known for its rhino (both black and white).

There is quite dense and diverse vegetation, with a mixture of knobthorn, marula, leadwood, and silver-leaf terminalia. The river sides are home to very large sycamore figs, and jackalberries, and to the east, near the Lebombo Mountains, there are open, grassy areas.

Of the 8 Private Concessions within the Park (boasting some 17 lodges), many are situated in the Southern reaches of the Park.
