It is managed the South African National Parks Board and is unrivalled in the diversity of its life forms and a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques and policies. Kruger is home to an impressive number of species: 336 trees, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals. The central and southern parts of the park have the best facilities for visitors, with an excellent network of roads and game-viewing waterholes.
