"Another Giraffe?!?!" Kruger National Park by diver-x

Kruger National Park Travel Guide: 667 reviews and 1,775 photos

We weren't in Kruger Park 30 seconds when a bunch of giraffes stepped in front of the car forcing us to stop and our jaws to drop. We whipped out the cameras and started snapping. Two days later, we were saying, "Aw, just another giraffe...".

Kruger Park is chock-full of animals, big and small. We saw lions, elephants, buffalo, rhino, hippos, wildebeests, zebras, wart-hogs, hyena, jackals, crocodiles, impala, kudu, waterbuck, tortoise and of course, giraffes. Not to mention all of the beautiful birds!

Kruger Park is roughly the size of the state of Massachusetts. It could take weeks to see just a small part of it. We were there 3 days and barely scratched the surface.
