2006 onwards Kruger National Park South Africa

The Kruger National Park is one of the largest and best managed National Parks in Africa. I will provide some statistics further below. I go there during every visit in South Africa and always enjoy my game drives and exlporing new routes.


Kruger National Park (Tsonga: [ˈkrúːɡà]; Afrikaans: [ˈkry.(j)ər]) is a South African National Park and one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 19,623 km2 (7,576 sq mi) in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in northeastern South Africa, and extends 360 km (220 mi) from north to south and 65 km (40 mi) from east to west. The administrative headquarters are in Skukuza. Areas of the park were first protected by the government of the South African Republic in 1898, and it became South Africa’s first national park in 1926.

To the west and south of the Kruger National Park are the two South African provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, respectively. To the north is Zimbabwe and to the east is Mozambique. It is now part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park that links Kruger National Park with the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe, and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.

The park is part of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere, an area designated by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as an International Man and Biosphere Reserve.[6]

The park has nine main gates allowing entrance to the different camps.

Great days in South Africa during the annual visit to familiy and friends. We started in Cape Town, moved to Johannesburg and Pretoria and finally to Nelspruit.

Visit to the wine lands around Stellenbosch to Delaire Graff Wine Estate and Spa. Golf in Nelspruit.

In Gauteng we booked the Kingdom Ressort near Sun city, met my friend Corry, my son Simon and Tanja with Sergio, and finally played Golf in Nelspruit in Mpumalanga.

As every year we enjoyed every minute in the Cape, the former Reef now Gauteng and in former Eastern Transvaal, today Mpumalanga.

2021-03 South Africa

Travelling to South Africa was only possible under strict adherence to all Covid rules and regulations. I used Emirates Airlines which provides top service even in Economy Class. Again I visited my childern and grand children including to celebrate Vera’s 40th birthday and also had enough time to roam around the country.
I opted for a road trip from Pretoria to Cape Town and later back via the Garden Route and the Drakensberge. On the first leg to Cape Town via Graff Reinett I had a welcomed co-driver my daughter Sara who was on her way home.

Needless to say amongst so many other choices, South Africa is an all year Golf destination with all kinds of courses.

For a short summary I could say it was once more a rewarding visit formost with the familiy. But also South Africa’s nature remains unmatched attractive and admirable to say the least.
