Hi all :D

When I was in the Krugerpark in January 2008, I saw this relatively 'new' book : Prime Origins Guide to Exploring Kruger.

Its written by Brett-Hilton Barber and Professor Lee R Berger, and comprises of 334 pages of unbelievable detailed information about The Kruger National Park. I personally think this is the best book you can buy about kruger, especially for camp and specific road / routes information :clap:

It has many special thems in it, like the 'little five, rare five, big 6 birds....info on specific ecozones and temperatures, geology, seasons. It covers most animals seen in the park quite detailed,....has a tree section, info about all the concessions and other small camps, and nice intresting stories.

All by all (in m opinion) the best book availible about Kruger!

Monné

Hi Pimbaa !

Have a look here it really looks great you can even have a preview of some sample pages.
We own a smaller and older edition and already that is great.
The new edition costs R235.And I think it's worth it.
Now this edition is on our ''book list'' for May. :wink:

Hi Pumbaa,

It was on promotion for R200 in the Krugerpark! We also ahve the smaller version, but that was just a forerunner, this one is very detailed.

Enjoy it :wink:

It's a "must buy".
I have the earlier edition.

My belief is that a good book adds priceless value to any trip. This is just the book to make anyone's trip memorable in every way.

I also have a copy of this book. Its wonderful!

If you are into birding, Try "Best birding in Kruger"also by Brett Hilton-Barber. Its also well worth it at R198.00 from Exclusive Books
