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 can't get it in the US, but I did see a rather decent (if basic...probably like the Kruger edition) page on Go's page dedicated to visiting Kruger. I don't recall seeing it before??

:huh:

I bought the Afrikaans version, but I must honestly say that the info contained in that book is old news to me and I think, 95% of other forumites. Through this forum, we are constantly kept updated with regards to all (or most) developments at SANParks. Day by day, even hour by hour. :thumbs_up:

:thumbs_up: Couldn't agree more, bought my edition about 2 months ago, and couldn't put it down. If you're a "Kruger Addict" this one's for you!

Thanks TreeQueen :D

I got my copy a while back and I couldnt put it down. It will definitely go onto my bookshelf to consult whenever I feel that I need to be transported to the bush!

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.
