Start your Kruger National Park safari holiday in the north of the park in the Punda Maria region. This is a great place to see the shy nyala antelope and the region offers some of the best birding in the park. Keep a look out for Africa’s largest antelope eland as well as elephant and buffalo while on game drives in the northern section of the park. This evening you will cook your dinner over an open fire out under the stars.
There is no better way to explore the Kruger National Park than experiencing the crisp fresh air and joining the experienced game rangers on the morning game drive. They will share their vast knowledge with you and share some interesting facts about all that lives and breathes in this magnificent piece of Africa. Keep a look out for Kudu and Sharpe’s grysbok among other antelope.
Then you’ll drive southwards through the Kruger National Park. Travel slowly so that you can take time to enjoy game viewing and keep a look out for rarer large antelope such as roan, sable and tsessebe. On the flood plains towards Shingwedzi many grazing antelope can often be seen, while elephant and buffalo tend to be found in the surrounding Mopani forests. The area is home to some of Kruger’s largest and most impressive elephants. In the afternoon you will enjoy a guided walk accompanied by an armed ranger into the surrounding bush. The guide will teach you how to track animals and tell you stories about life in the bush.
