The Kruger National Park density of permanent game is almost unrivalled; 507 birds, 336 trees, 147 mammals, 114 reptiles, 49 fish and 34 amphibians! The Kruger Park alone is close on 2 000 000 ha and boasts 16 macro eco-zones or distinctly different vegetation zones, no other game reserve adjacent to the Kruger National park can boast nor rival this diversity.
Area of operations
Generally we operate in the central regions of the Kruger National Park. This is done primarily to avoid the southern portions of the park, which can become busy at times.
The central area is characterised by more open savannah thus increasing visibility and exponentially increasing the chance of seeing some of the numerous predators found in this area, such as lion, spotted hyena, leopard and cheetah. On these open savannah area’s we find a wide variety of herbivores such as; zebra, blue wildebeest, impala, giraffe etc… All four the aforementioned animals feature highly on the preferred diet of predators.
In the northern portion of the central region we find the Olifants and Letaba rivers with magnificent Riverine Forests offering great opportunities of seeing elephant and vast herds of buffalo, alongside a host of other wildlife in some of the finest scenery afforded by the Kruger Park.
Due to the fact that this is a one night stay we tend to spend more time driving than usual, this is purposely done as to afford our guests the maximum chance of seeing some of the wonderful wildlife of Kruger park.
We make regulation stops for breakfast and lunch; guests can also make use of bathrooms. While on the road we also stop at picnic stops and vantage points where guests may get off the vehicle and stretch their legs.
It is very difficult to give an exact time when breakfast and lunch stops will take place as this will very much be dependant on the sightings we have had.
