Kruger's Birding Big 6

Unread postby wildtuinman » Wed Jun 06, 2012 8:13 am

Kruger National Park is one of the few places where one can spot the magestical Big 6 Birds. I have been fortunate to spot all 6 in a single weekend between Satara and Olifants! Here are some of our photos taken in Kruger.
