South Africa’s Kruger National Park has made TripAdvisor’s list of ‘Destinations for Outdoor Enthusiasts’ at their Travellers’ Choice Awards for 2022.
Kruger National Park a top spot for the outdoorsy
Kruger National Park has made it into the Top five in TripAdvisor’s category of ‘Destinations for Outdoor Enthusiasts’, listed alongside several other stunning national parks including Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, Jim Corbett National Park in India and Arenal Volcano National Park in Costa Rica.
According to TripAdvisor, “Kruger National Park is basically a synonym for the word “safari.” Home to over 500 bird species, 100 reptiles, nearly 150 mammals, multiple archaeological sites, and a stunningly diversity of trees and flowers, Kruger is the country’s flagship national park. Adventurers can explore the park in a 4×4, take a bush walk or fly above in a hot-air balloon.”
As per their site, TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best award winners are decided by actual travelers, who go, try and share their experiences.
Kirstenbosch also took home a TripAdvisor award
