Cub of any description is wonderful to see, but a leopard cub being taught how to climb a tree by Mum is the sweetest thing to watch

Interesting sights are all over the park. From dung beetles rolling balls of dung to elephants providing the dung.

Vehicle(s) of all types are to be seen in our parks. Make sure that your vehicle does not exceed the speed limit.

Relaxation is not top of the list when you visit a Park like KTP, KNP or even ADDO for that matter, getting up at the crack of dawn is the order of the day if you want to make the most of your visit! :thumbs_up:
