The Kruger National Park safari trip in November was filled with a variety fo photographic opportunities. We started our trip high up in the North at Punda Maria camp, well known for the large number of bird species that migrate there from Europe and Africa in the summer months. Punda Maria is a quaint camp with the option of staying in chalets or a luxury tent. There is a stunning hide overlooking a waterhole on the edge of the camp that guests can view large and small game as well as birds from. In summer the temperatures can reach up to 44 degrees in the North but there is a swimming pool to cool down with. From Punda Maria we visited Pafuri and the famous Crooks corner near the Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa river crossing. The bird life up at Pafuri is spectacular and the fever tree forests are just stunningly beautiful. From the North we traveled down to the Southern region of Kruger, staying over at Shingwedzi, Olifants and Satara camps. All the camps have been upgraded and the chalets and facilities are in excellent condition. We saw the “big Five” in the week that we spent traveling down from the north to the south as well as unusual sightings such as Rollers interacting and feeding their juvenile, a Roller with a snake, a Pearl-spotted owlet and many different types of raptors. I would certainly recommend a 10 day trip to the Kruger National park from the north to the south to optimize photographic opportunities.
