Unfortunately schools break up for the Easter hols on the 31st March so you could find the park and gates pretty busy.

I drive the gravel roads as much as possible during the busy season. They do not seem to attract as much traffic.

There is a sightings App that can be used in Kruger. I strongly advise against using it. It seems to attract crowds and defeats the whole purpose of being in the Park.

If I remember correctly, you are into birding. The Salitje road is one of my favorite bird roads in Kruger. It covers many eco zones and offers great diversity. I also suggest a drive to the Stevenson Hamilton Memorial for a special experience. I have never found that drive to be crowded.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Many thanks MM. Yes, I do enjoy the birds, but equally all other creatures. Yes, I know the app you mean, but I find if you see a crowd, go in the opposite direction, and generally one is ok! Plus, I have all the patience of a saint with wildlife so don't mind sitting and waiting and waiting and waiting, long after the madding crowd has dispersed.

Think I may stock up on snacks on the Sat afternoon in the shop at Malelane to get a head start (0600) early Sun morning. Not long now, arrive in Swaziland on the 23rd! then to KNP on the 1st Apr :D
