Advice on activities

Unread post by charamal » Mon Jul 11, 2016 11:34 am

Hello,
We will be staying in Kruger from 27th July to 2nd August (Punda Maria, Tzende, Letaba, Lower Sabie). I would be very grateful for some advice on game-drives/guided walks from those camps. Given the time of year and the current conditions are any of them a better option than the others?

Also, is it necessary to book in advance at this time of year?

Many thanks!

Hi :D

I advise booking in advance - it is still peak season, so if your heart is set on a specific walk/drive, rather book.

Walks and drives are really dependent on luck as far as seeing game - LS area has the most game, but a walk is not about game but the little things. We have enjoyed all the drives and walks from various camps.

I suggest you consider a sunset drive, and a morning walk.

charamal, do also have a read through Info on walks taken from camps and Info on Sunset/night drives taken from camps which might offer some extra info and advice and help you make a decision.
Enjoy!

Hi Charamel, that does sound a very inclusive itinerary.

I would suggest that you try to see the Thulamela ruins while you are at Punda. It has been on my wish list for a long time and seems to be an experience that many mites enjoy. I have noticed people booking once they are in Punda.
