Just got back yesterday 21 March from KNP wat a blast had such a fantastic time.Luckily I found some one to come with me (needede the conversation).
Saw some great sightings and had a lot of fun.
Stayed 1 night at all the camps in order of Pretoriouskop, Letaba,Skukuza And finally Lower Sabie.
Not going to bore anybody so I'll just get on with what I saw :
Lion (3 times 1 great sighting walked right next to the car and my first time KNP buddy almost died).
Plenty of white rhino all over the south.
Lucky enough to get a picture in daylight of a black rhino (that was the best part of the trip for me)
Lots of ground hornbills
Lots of side striped jackals
Even got a great shot of a side striped jackal ( my first sighting ever)
European rollers ,lilac breasted rollers ,hornbills,guinea fowl and quite a few saddle billed stalks but from distance.
Believe it or not I only saw 2 buffalo far away on the olifants river bank .( disappointed with the lack of buffalo sightings).
Elephants where every where .
Zebra and wildebeest together almost every where especially around satara.
Even saw some ostrich.
Saw the usual antelope : impala ,waterbuck,kudu ,duiker ,bush buck ,klipspringer.
Had a a good sighting of about 20-30 brown headed parrots ( what fantastic colouring).
Even had some hyena round and about in the morning .
But the great thing about the park is that I added someone who knew nothing about the park to it ,and he cant wait to get back there. If I taught him one thing about the KNP its that its not only about the big five its about the small things to
Hope this doesn't bore anybody I'm going to go work now hope it goes as well for You as it did for me.
Would rather drive that distance and be in the park than be at home .So you have to do what you got to do
