Kruger National Park is located in northeastern South Africa in Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces. The park is home to five major rivers, the Crocodile, the Sabie, the Olifants, the Letaba and the Luvuvhu which help to provide a good habitat for the over 500 species of birds that can be found in the park. About 250 of the bird species are classified as year-round residents while roughly 120 are non-breeding migrants and another 150 or so are nomads. Here are some of the magnificent bird species of Kruger National Park.
