We stayed in the park for 25 days travelling from punda to pretoriioroskop and can only say, what a great trip. The camps were wonderful .and the sightings superb. This was our third trip to kruger but the first staying in the park. I will return in 2017 as it is just the best holiday. Saw black rhino mum and bub, many ellie babies, young roan and tsessebe, cheetahs and lions. So many impala lambs and even a steenbok baby..how little it was. Zebra, giraffe, warthog, white rhinos, but the saddest sight was the two dead hippos we saw...lack of grass from the drought. I hope that the wet season is a good one so that kruger can recover.


Yip that's the circle of life. Nature and its intense emotions are what makes SANParks special.
Thanks for the really good pics

Thanks for the kind words. This place is so special and I just hope that it is kept unspoilt for many years to come. Look forward to seeing more pics of mums and bubs...I tried to put on cheetah and white rhino but it wouldn't work.
Circle of life is so true but still sad to see...but I guess that's how the park is regenerated with stronger animals...natural culling by the elements. Hope to return in april-may 2017 and perhaps even later in the year as well.....

elliefant, you really had wonderful sightings. :D

It is sad about the hippos. :( I am so pleased that the drought seems to be behind us.

I do love those little cubs. What an adorable sighting.

On morning of 19 April, on H1-6 just north of Mopani this little fellow was running parallel to me along the road, peeking at me throught the grass until mum called him on, when he would catch her up then stop to look at me again - went on for 10 minutes or so and was magical.

So cute. Love the little ones of Kruger. A couple of years ago we stopped at a hyena den. The little guy disappeared. We didn't want to drive incase he was under us (thankfully we didn't) Decided to check if he was there with the goPro. The cheeky little thing had a go at the GOPRO!!
