Kruger is one of the most reliable places to see the elusive Leopard. This tour comines all the best birds and mammals in one of the finest National Parks in the world followed by rainforest specialities in idyllic mountain scenery.

The immense 20,000 km² Kruger National Park has within it an amazing mix of habitats and offers some of the best opportunities to see such a diverse range of African fauna. The dry season is one of the best for all of the key mammal species here including some of the more elusive such as Leopard, Caracal, Serval and Wild Dog. Multiple river systems are extremely fruitful in with resident hippos and crocodiles and following re-introduction fifty years ago Kruger now has an impressive population of White Rhinos. In addition, even without visiting migrants, the range of birds is equally large and includes many which are found only on the eastern side of Southern Africa including Crowned Eagle, Pel’s Fishing Owl, Saddle-billed and Open-billed Storks, Grey-headed Bush-Shrike, Black-collared Barbet, Black-headed Oriole and Purple-crowned Turaco. Our tour will be unhurried, exploring Kruger from north to south, deliberately taking time and thoroughly enjoying the best parts. We will conclude our holiday with two nights in a beautiful hotel Mount Sheba, set in the scenic splendour of the northern Drakensberg Mountains. Here, a whole range of forest bird species such as White-starred Robin, Black Cuckoo-shrike and Knysna Turaco can be seen.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding all aspects of travel in 2020 we have now made the decision to postpone this tour, the new dates being 16 - 31 October 2021. Whilst travel might open up by October this year it would have been a huge gamble to bank on this. We, like everyone, would prefer to allow everything to settle and normality to return. We are grateful to everyone for understanding and support and pleased that so many have been able to reschedule although we now have a few places available. We anticipate demand to be very high next year so please do not hesitate to reserve places if you are interested. As soon as we are able to reconfirm flights we will be in touch.
