Happy month of Spring to all :D :thumbs_up:

Are there perhaps one or more things that you would like to add to my list below of things to do in the SA National Parks during September?

Agulhas National Park - Seeing a Southern Right Whale at the Southern Tip of Africa.

Augrabies Falls National Park - A walk to the summit of Moon Rock for the best view of the Park.

Bontebok National Park - A picnic or braai on the banks of the Breede River.

Camdeboo National Park – For the unrivaled scenic beauty of the Karoo.

Garden Route National Park - a Picnic at Velbroeksdraai in the Knysna Lakes Section of the Park or a spring meal at the Materollie Coffee shop.

Golden Gate Highlands National Park – Seeing the rock formations, the birds, the grassland and the overwhelming Golden Gate scenery.

Karoo National Park - Breathe the freshest of air in a vast landscape and have a swim at the Bulkraal picnic site. Seeing plenty of Spingbokke!

September is a good month to visit the Kruger National Park as there is an anticipation of new life in the air before the rains arrive.
