DIVERSE ECO-SYSTEMS

Representing almost 80% of the Kruger National Parks Biodiversity!

Considered to be one of Kruger’s biodiversity hotspots, the Makuleke is home to some of the largest herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as leopard and lion, and prolific bird life.

The Makuleke Contractural Park is known for its high biodiversity, which can be attributed to the geographic location as well as the diversity of landscape features.

The pan system comprises a number of land cover types from riverine forest, riparian floodplain forest, floodplain grassland, river channels and pans, all of which create a variety of habitats for an abundance of plant, animal and bird species. The riverine forest system in the area provides food, shelter and nesting sites for the largest number of bird species found within the Kruger National Park. Furthermore, the pan system provides an important stopover for many migratory water birds.

In 2007 the biological significance of the area was recognised when it was declared as a Ramsar Site – a wetland of international importance.
