All the Big Five (Lion, Buffalo, Leopard, Elephant and Rhinoceros) game animals are found at Kruger National Park, which has more species of mammals than any other African Game Reserve. The park is divided into six eco-systems: Baobab sandveld, Mopane scrub, Lebombo knobthorn-marula bushveld, mixed acacia thicket, Combretum-silver clusterleaf woodland on granite and riverine forest. Altogether it has 1,982 species of plants.The park is part of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere, an area designated by the United Nations Education and Scientific Organisation (UNESCO) as an International Man and Biosphere Reserve (the "Biosphere"). The Greater Kruger Park area is vast in size and amazing in its beauty. There are myriad private game parks and concessions in this area and a great many exciting places to visit. Bourkes Luck Potholes, Gods Window, Mac Mac Falls, Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrims Rest, Sudwala Caves and Bridal Veil Falls to name but a few.
