South Africa. Part Three, Kruger National Park & Swaziland.
Written by Jos   

Plains Zebra 

 

The jewel in South Africa's crown, the vast Kruger National Park boasts not only one of the highest mammal diversities anywhere in Africa, but also an impressive bird list totalling over 500 species. Covering almost 20,000 square kilometres, a visit of short duration is always going to be a mere scratch of its surface, even more so due to the range if habitats present and the significantly differing natures of the north and south.

South Africa. Part Two, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
Written by Jos   

Lion

 

Remote, wild and stunning, the Kgalagadi is truly an amazing place. Situated in a vast slab of land protruding up between Namibia and Botswana, it is in the Kgalagadi that the rolling dunes of the Kalahari are punctuated by the Auob and Nossob Valleys, shallow depressions vegetated by grassland and stunted acacias, populated by an impressive array of birds, an abundance of antelopes and gazelles and, most importantly, a density of feline predators to rival almost anywhere in Africa, plus good numbers of Brown Hyena and plenty more on top.

Ostrich 

 

 

A week-long loop starting and finishing in Cape Town. Incorporating the West Coast National Park, the remote expanses of the Tanqua Karoo, the fertile Agulhus Plain and excellent De Hoop nature reserve, this part of the trip then concluded with a number of localities around Cape Town itself, plus a super pelagic trip into the waters south of the Cape of Good Hope.
