Hi Berkhead,
This map here http://www.ecotravel.co.za/Images/swf/knp-01-03-07.swf is made with vector graphics so is infinitely scalable, you would be able to print it any size you like without loosing print quality, I don't know where you live but in Canada there are several companies that would print this from a URL to whatever size you want. Hopefully you can find it "off the shelf" but if not this could be a solution.
Cheers
Rick

Have a look for a fold-out map. I got a previous version to this with a guide book once.

I can't remember how detailed it is, we prefer the Honeyguide map book while in the park and at home, but it may be what you are looking for.

Hi Berkhead

Another option for you might be a fold up map which I got from one of the Kruger shops a few years ago. You can see it http://www.saexplorer.co.za/south-afric ... ld_map.asp Scroll down to Touring Map of Kruger Park.Has a map of Kruger on the one side with surrounding areas. On the flip side a detailed map of Kruger together with camp layouts, distance charts as well as gate opening and closing times.

Thanks for that link Rick :thumbs_up: I had that map on my computer but lost it and had no idea where to find it again. :roll: :) It is a great map!

Hi fellow mites.

I found Go Mag KNP Maps useful for my recent trip.

It added excitement and a different dimension to our trip planning.

I will be traveling to Kruger for 2 weeks in October.
My number one hobby is traveling to locations rich in wildlife and natural beauty.
My second favorite hobby is researching before my travels.
I am thrilled whenever I find a forum like this exists for a destination that I'm traveling to.
There's always general forums like TripAdvisor, but forums like this, filled with people that are passionate about a destination and have traveled to that destination numerous times is invaluable.

My first questions for the forum are about maps and guidebooks.
I of course have done some research on them and it seems that the Honeyguide book that is sold at the park gates is a must have.
However, I can not figure out how to get my hands on one ahead of time.
My next question is what other guidebook/map would be at the top of your personal must have list?

Hi Leftylynn.
If you can get your hands on one, I recommend: "Prime Origins Guide to Exploring Kruger" by Brett Hilton Barber and Prof Lee R Berger.
It has everything in there that you would want to know about Kruger.
Camp info; what to expect on all roads; descriptions of the different habitats and their fauna and flora etc.
Its a must-have for any visitor to Kruger!

Hi,

If you can't get your hands on Prime Origins guide(which I haven't), I find the Getaway Guide to Kruger pretty good, with good advice on all the camps and routes. It can be got from most online bookstores.

Might see you there in October :lol:


And just so we aren't seen to be favouring one magazine in favour of another, GO!Kruger also has a new edition out. Have a look here.

(Lyn to explain, there are 2 South African magazines, Getaway and GO, that specialise in South African travel. Both are well worth a read if you can get hold of them).
