 More about the reserve, Balule Nature Reserve is about 50,000 hectares. In 2004, the eastern boundary fence was removed and Balule was officially incorporated into the Greater Kruger National Park established in 1898. The Greater Kruger National park together with KNP itself is now an open system that covers over 2 million hectares where the animals can wander freely up to Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Balule is home to the Big Five - Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard. In total there are about 94 mammal, 280 bird, 72 reptile and 128 tree species, in the reserve. Even the highly endangered African Wild Dogs and Cheetahs visit regularly. Self-driving is not permitted in Balule, mostly to keep down traffic and avoid guests from getting lost or stuck in the Bush. On Safari with an experienced ranger means successful private sightings without too many vehicles. While the animals are free to wander from Balule into Kruger National Park you have to leave Balule to enter the Park through one of the official KNP gates.
