KRUGER N.P.

 

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 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 Bateleur, African Hawk-eagle, White-headed and Lappet-faced Vultures, 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 - a perfect opportunity to enjoy the finest African wildlife in comfort.  Daily drives into the Kruger National Park will be in open safari vehicles which provide unrivalled views. In between, our daily plans allow time to relax and enjoy the excellent grounds of the rest camps.

We will conclude our holiday with two nights in Mount Sheba, a beautiful hotel set in the scenic splendour of the northern Drakensberg Mountains. Here, a whole range of forest bird species such as White-starred Robin, Orange Ground-thrush, Black Cuckoo-shrike and Knysna Turaco can be seen.
