Kruger in June

Unread postby kite » Fri Feb 15, 2013 9:00 am

We have dashed up to the park over the long weekend in June and though it is a busy time, were very satisfied with our trip.
It is a little chilly early in the morning but warms up beautifully during sunny days.
Stand a little closer to the fire at night to keep cosy while enjoying the braai.
The animals are ever present and time on the road means good sightings!

I am going again this year just before the school holidays - it is a wonderful time - chilly in the early morning and then usually wonderful sunny days. Grass is short and things are dry so lots of animal sightings. The negative is that the days are much shorter but at the same time you dont find the need for a nap in the afternoon due to the heat. Not so many birds but also not so many snakes and creepies - all in all a good time of the year

I wanted to plan a camping trip to Satara early / mid June (before the major rush of the school holidays) and find that camping is mostly all booked up. There even seems to be more availability in July then June, which seems strange due to school holidays in July. Does anyone know why Satara camping is so fully booked up in June ? Is this always the case or just this year ?

What is an alternative camp to Satara for a nice camping holiday ?

Buffalo, buffalo everywhere.

I did enjoy the escape from the cold G'teng. The weather was really very pleasant. The Park was less busy than I expected.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.
