Just confirmed my booking, 4 nights at Punda and then 4 at Balule. It is a while since I have spent time in KNP in May and so I am looking forward to the trip. Cool enough to enjoy a fire at night and maybe even a hot water bottle for the tent.

My first post on the forum is to say that I'm very encouraged by this thread as my wife and I are booked to arrive in KNP on May 1st for 6 nights. I was fortunate to visit the park a couple of years ago when on a trip with friends but it will be my wife's first visit so I really want it to be a memorable experience for her.

We are staying the first two nights in Skukuza followed by four in Satara and are currently planning routes and trips. One of the group on our original visit grew up in Phalaborwa although he now lives in the UK and he has been visiting KNP at least once a year for many years so we were able to leave all the planning to him but this time we're on our own so trying hard to make sure we make the right decisions about routes and times at this stage rather than when it's too late.

One piece of information that I've searched the forum for with no success is a suggestion for a good animal /bird identification book. Things that are everyday sightings for the seasoned visitor will all be new to us so any recommendations would be gratefully received.

Warm welcome to the forum Jinks! :clap:

Your best bet would be to buy one of the Map books at either the gate when you enter the park or at any of the camp shops.
Most of them have pictures of the common birds and animals one is likely to encounter as well as the road maps so a good purchase all round.
Otherwise if you require more detailed books then there is a wealth of info in the Bookshelf

Hi Jinks, For birds I can highly recommend the Roberts app. if you use a smart phone. Really works well.
