i tend to use the 'sappi tree spotting lowveld' book for a map, basic trees of the area are always near at hand. :D

I must get one of those. Thanks for that info, Forest Gump.

I have added the two "Prime Origins" boooks to my collection. The one is "Exploring Kruger", the other "Best birding in Kruger". I have also added "Peter's Guide to the Kruger National Park".

I do need a tree guide though, as I really would like to sharpen my knowledge of trees.

'Exploring Kruger' is great, isn't it! I use it a ton.

It is OWN. I browse through it for weeks before I leave. Best birding is also fantastic, if you are a novice. It helps to narrow down the focus and prevent hours of looking through little brown and yellow things.

I've got a new map thanks to this forum, as a lovely forumite sent it to me :dance:
Exploring Kruger is one of the book I tried to get here in Germany, but no chance, as it isn't available anymore. So I hope to find it in a Kruger shop. :(

Thanks for the "Best Birding in Kruger" tip, MM - maybe I'll finally be able to identify some birds!

The most recent map that is on sale in the Camp Shops is really :thumbs_up:

We still also use one that my family used in the 1980’s and that one is full of written notes :wink:

Just looking at my one that I use most frequently, Andy and Lorrain Tinker's one, and must admit its looking rather tatty! :wink:
On the last trip some of the pages came loose, so I stick taped them in and also have little notes written all over it.
But it has been a good map with lots of extra useful info.
Maybe a new one in Feb might not be such a bad idea. :hmz:

I had to retire my Tinker's map of Kruger before our trip last month as it was in multiple pieces, and looking very sad. First thing we did on arrival at Letaba was purchase a replacement. We also have the big fold out Sunbird map, but I don't use it much as it is too difficult to get folded back correctly in the car! I do like the Tinker's map, as it is small and I can fold it so just a small area where we are is showing.
My old Tinkers map was all colored with highlighters in different colors for each trip, showing each road we traversed. The entire south of the park was colored over like a rainbow. :D
