The first national park Hoge Kempen, which was opened in 2006 in Flanders, is a special pride of the Belgians. Its territory covers the land of 6 municipalities and is about 5000 hectares. The entire reserve is composed of pine forests that grow interspersed with green meadows. The place where sand and gravel were mined previously has now become an impressive lake, remarkable in size. All the beauty of the park can be seen by rising to the natural heights of Hoge Kempen, which is a little less than 100 meters. The reserve has become a habitat for such rare animals as a slippery snake, European bee wolf or antlions. You will also come across a roe here.
