Rogue in the Kruger Park

Yesterday Kendrick Imports spent an afternoon in the Kruger Park. A few hours in the Kruger Park in South Africa is always a treat with the expectation of what may be seen a few metres further along the road. Yesterday did not disappoint us with great sightings of a Rogue elephant, a pride of lion, giraffe, zebra, warthog, buffalo, rhino, a troupe of baboons and a beautiful petite Pearl Spotted Owl all at close range.

Equipped in our Of African Origin Safari Gear of shirts, shorts, skirt and sun top along with Rogue hats (the Packaway to be precise) to shield the sun from our eyes, we arrived at Phabeni gate (just 5 minutes drive from Hazyview) about 2.30pm. With the gates closing at 6pm we knew we had three and a half hours to be enthralled and surprised! The Kruger Park is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you have the time to spend a couple of days exploring the area and to stay in the Camps that are dotted about the Park. It is perfectly safe to drive yourself around the Park even if you are an overseas tourist. The park is well sign posted and the maps very simple to follow!

At Skukuza Camp – the nerve centre of the Park, is the largest camp shop. Rogue have a complete wall to display all of their wonderful products. The usual Rogue canvas hats, original Rogue leather hats and range of Rogue Breezy hats (with mesh sides to cool the head) are all available alongside Rogue bags and Rogue boots. The shop also stocks the Rogue belts, wallets and other accessories.Skukuza  shop also houses the new range from Rogue called “The Rogue Big 5 Range”. This range has the usual hats, belts and boots but hand-made in the more rare and unusual hides such as hippo, warthog, gemsbok, wildebeast and even elephant. As the range is far more expensive and varied we are not stocking the items in the UK through Kendrick Imports, but will happily import any item in to order. If you would like to see the Rogue “Big 5” range check it out at www.rogue.co.za if you see something you would like to order simply e mail us at infor@kendrickimports.com and we will quote you a price and delivery time.
