wondercloak you will have an awesome time!!
I have been there in winter and summer and both are great for photo opportunities… trust me I took 1000’s of photos!
Unfortunately for me the hide did not produce much chance for photos, as most of the birds were a bit far… BUT I must say that it was at the end of winter so the water levels were very low and the pools of water that were left were quite a distance away.
Stayed in Limpopo forest tented camp and Leokwe and it is beautiful from both these camps. Also the confluence point and all the other places Joel, Johann etc mentioned. Another spot is a little dam just as jou past the main gate and turn to your right... you will also have a nice view of the Voortrekker koppie from there.
The nightdrive… well I won’t really comment on that because unfortunately had a bad experience, but as Joel said hopefully that is sorted now. I do however know that the sunset and the scenery on the drive (while still light enough too see) is absolutely awesome! You most probably will get nice shots with the baobabs and the sunset
We stayed in Limpopo TC and had to drive to the main gate for the drive, and then had to drive back alone later. I suggest if possible take a good spotlight with AND be careful… although exciting (and scary) the elephants love that ‘forest’ part around the camp at night so be on the look out! O yes and you must open the 'gate' yourselves.... LOL we waited for quite sometime and no one pitched... so i had do jump out quickly and make a dash for it. Afterwards it seems that it is actually what everyone does
You must have a stunning trip!
