Explore Kruger National Park at the heart of South Africa

Watching a golden sun set over hundreds of expansive acres across the open African plain will take your breath away. Getting up the next day to gaze upon the sunrise and marvel at the roaming zebras, elephants, lions, buffalo and other majestic creatures will only inspire you further, instilling a pleasant resolve in your mind and putting you entirely at ease. 

There is something surreal about looking over the endless stretches of African savannah. With few human distractions in sight and only the soft expanse of grasslands and rocky outcroppings expanding in front of you, it's an unparalleled calming experience. 

In South Africa's Kruger National Park, becoming one with the nature and wildlife is a certainty. Kruger is a safari location unmatched by any other destination on the African continent.

More diversity of life than you can imagine
Home to 34 types of amphibian, 49 different fish, 114 species of reptile, 147 kinds of mammal, 336 different trees and 507 kinds of bird, Kruger National Park is a haven for unique wildlife that has been meticulously studied by the park professionals. Take tour with a qualified guide or go it alone using one of the self-drive safaris. The park has incomparable access to scenic views and big game animals, and the self-drive safaris afford travelers the independence and leisure to see the sights whenever they please.

Seeing it all in comfort and style
For those who prefer to stay close to civilization rather perusing the African plains, some of the lodgings near Kruger offer incredible views of the nearby wildlife. Nothing beats rolling out of bed to see the grazing elephants and zebras from the comfort of a porch-side lawn chair. 

Kruger is two parts exotic wildlife and natural sights and one part luxurious five-star accommodations. Families can relax by the pool beside their spacious lodgings or enjoy some of the finest cuisine at some of the hosted campfires. Relaxing in the heartland of the open plains comes naturally when visitors are spoiled by such beautifully comfortable lodges and world-class service.

For travelers looking for more untouched wilderness to relax in, a hike through the jungles of Laos may be an appealing idea for a future adventure. Trek through lush forests and up beautiful mountainsides or cruise down a tranquil river along quiet villages in a traditional bamboo raft. The serenity of Laos is sure to sooth travelers who love to lounge and feed other visitors' desire to explore the uninhabited wild.
