SEPTEMBER 15 - 21, 2019
Kruger National Park
The Makuleke is located in the far north of the Kruger National Park, between the Limpopo River to the north and the Levuvhu River to the south. Owned by the Makuleke people, this concession is one of the last remaining outposts of true wild-land in South Africa. 25 000 hectares of uncharted valleys, lush riverine bush, rugged gorges, fever tree forests and remote floodplains hold more than 75% of the biodiversity of Kruger National Park. With large free-roaming herds, a rich archaeological footprint and a tangible sense of solitude, the Makuleke is an ideal wilderness journey destination.
The Kruger National Park is a South African icon of conservation. Located in the eastern Lowveld of the country, the reserve is a 450-kilometre long slice of pristine wilderness and is bordered by Mozambique to the east, the Crocodile River to the south, and the Limpopo River to the north. The total surface area, which incorporates cross-border zones, is about 2 million hectares and is a crucial island of wildlife habitat and ecosystem preservation.
