The king of South African game Parks is the Kruger National Park
and one of the best game-viewing areas in all of Africa.
The figures speak for
themselves: 501 Bird species, 110 reptiles, 51 fish, 31 amphibians, 142 mammal
and over 23,100 plant species have been recorded here. The region itself is
enormous, extending from the Crocodile river in the South to the Limpopo in the
North, from the wooded foothills of the eastern escarpment to the humid plains
of the Low veld.
It certainly fulfills most visitors' fantasies of seeing magnificent herds of
game roaming across acacia-studded stretches of savannah and, of course, is home
to the Big Five.
The park is 120 km wide and over 450 km long, conserving 21,497
sq. km, an area the size of Wales or Israel. Despite its size, it is very well
developed, with a good network covering 2600 km of roads and numerous camps,
making a Kruger safari relatively hassle free.

Our Mineral Wealth
The unique and extensive geological formations in South Africa are the origins
of our mineral wealth. The Witwatersrand Basin holds a considerable share of the
world's gold reserves, as well as some uranium, silver, pyrite and osmiridium.
This basin yields some 98 per cent of South Africa's gold. The Bush veld complex
in Mpumalanga and Limpopo produces more than half of the worlds chrome ore. Ores
of vanadium, iron, titanium, copper, nickel, and fluorspar are also found here.
South Africa also possesses some of other important mineral reserves
- The Transvaal System contains more than 80 per cent of the worlds manganese
reserves, as well as significant amounts of iron ore.
- Mpumalanga and Kwazulu Natal have significant coal and anthracite reserves
- The Phalaborwa Igneous Complex contains extensive deposits of zinc ores, as
well as copper, titanium, phosphate, iron, vermiculite and zirconium
- The Northern Cape has significant deposits of zinc ores, as well as copper
- Diamonds (kimberlitic, alluvial, and marine), as well as titanium, iron and
zircon are found allover the country
As a result of these mineral riches, South Africa is one of the worlds
largest mineral producers. Most of these minerals are mined for the
South African wine
The Kruger National Park
The Kruger National Park
is undoubtedly one of the worlds greatest game parks.

removed allowing the wildlife greater access to natural resources as well as
increasing the game viewing opportunities for tourist
