Kruger National Park - November 2013

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.

Mjejane / Kruger Safari Tour

This large game reserve offers the wildlife photographer a number of varied photographic opportunities from bird and animal photograpy to landscape and macro photography.

Kgalagadi & Augrabies National Parks

These two reserves are in close proximity to each other and yet they offer such different landscapes. The Kgalagadi is an ideal game reserve to photograph barren landscapes, red dunes, fascinating large and small wildlife as well as an abundant variety of bird species. A special of of this park is the opportunity to photograph the Meerkat colonies that reside in the park.

The Augrabies National Park has a wonderful variety of landscapes and flowers to photograph. The enormous Augrabies gorge navigates through the park and has numerous rock formations and water features to photograph. The Quiver tree forest is an exceptional aspect of this reserve which deserves to be photographed early morning or late afternoon.
