Photos Taken in Camp

Unread postby Stproc » Sat Mar 05, 2011 9:59 pm

Hi all

Just wondering what photos you have taken inside the camps themselves. Last time we came over to Kruger we didn't give much though to what was in the camps themselves. This time we will !!!

TIA

There is a lot of activity in camp if one only looks. Birding can be of the best as you are in a conservation area and they are not as skittish as normal

It is also not uncommon for the camps to have their resident population of larger mammals and even though they may seem tame I would suggest you give them their space as they are only used to humans and not tame. If you look at the outside of the perimeter fence you would often see a footpath, this is a sign of a hyena patrolling the outside of the fence, resist temptation to offer her a tidbit. Monkeys and baboons also come right in to the camps and would raid any food left out so be aware, once again do not feed them as they become pests and have to be dealt with.

If you look closely you could find a myriad of smaller unusual creatures that make the trip so much more interesting

Hope you have a great and unforgettable trip

Having visited most of the main camp from South to North, and back, I've found that all of them are always rich with active residents.

Found these in all the camps

One of the great things about KNP is that you can sit in your verandah and you'll always have a great time viewing the local residents getting along with their daily life.

We also found lots of activity in almost all the camps throughout the Kruger and Kgalagadi.
If you look closely you can find in the summer a lot of interesting animals, like insects and some scorpions.
Even in the winter you will see many active residents in the camps.
