Unread postby TreeQueen » Wed Feb 16, 2011 4:01 pm

Go! Magazine has published a special edition (2011) based purely on the Kruger National Park! I just recently bought it. I am not sure for how long it will still be on the shelves in stores so try get yourselves a copy!

It's R36.95 and it has everything in it from the camps to the bush wilderness trails and the picnic spots....etc

Yes it does slant towards the 'campers' and the 'KNP beginners'....however it is still a nice 'keepsake' :D

I consider myself lucky to live in a small "plaasdorpie" (place where guinea fowl are your alarm clock :dance: Saw on the shelves today about 30 copies still of this Kruger must have!
I guess we don't have much Kruger fans where we live or they don't know of this Special Edition :doh:
If all else fail, just PM me with your details and I'll gladly send you a copy.
This must be shared, thanks again TreeQueen for sharing :thumbs_up:
and GO! you're the best :thumbs_up:

It says in my copy of Go Kruger : If you have any questions or would like to buy a copy of go! kruger - contact Anselie Hoffman on 021 446 1044 (overseas mites - that is 027214461044. Or email verkope@media24.com. Exclusive Books may also have copies. I got my SO and my son a copy each for Christmas. We both read it from cover to cover and will definitely be taking it with us in May when we go to Kruger. A comprehensive guide for Kruger lovers. Big thanks to Media 24 for this publication.

I have been subscribing to Go! magazine for some months - it is excellent IMHO.
Go! ran a series of very good articles on all of the camps in KNP and then did the same thing for other SANParks. The Kruger special edition is a collation of those articles - plus.
Go! also has an excellent website and for information on KNP go to [url=http://www.gomag.co.za/kruger/index.html[url]
There is information about all of the camps with many photographs, recommended routes - in fact all of the information that one would need for travelling to and through KNP.
Incidentally, Getaway also published a guide to KNP (first published 2005). It too is full of useful information and photos (224 pages)
The best KNP "reference" that I have ever come across is the book written by Wilf Nussey with photos by David Paynter. It was first published in 1986 and the content is still relevant today - not much has changed in KNP in terms of camps and roads. It is still a great book to dip into before, and after, a trip to KNP, I reckon.
If you do not have a copy, I strongly suggest that you look in all of the second hand bookshops that you can find!
