Visit the The Kruger Park in 2011

The Kruger Park in South Africa is a truly special place to visit.  You can drive yourself around the huge area (about 7,700 square miles) or can join organised game drives on game viewing vehicles.

There are 9 gates which lead to camps within the park which need to be pre-booked if you would like to stay one or more nights within the park. To pre- book on line click the following link http://www.sanparks.org/parks/kruger.  Accommodation is clean, comfortable and varies from camps such as Biyamiti Bush Camp with only a few self-catering chalets with no shop or other facilities, to the larger camps such as Skukuza which has a shop, restaurant, information centre, bank, car hire etc.

Whilst in the Kruger Park there are a few rules to be obeyed such as you cannot get out of your vehicle except at rest camps and strict speed limits on roads.

It is best to go to the park well prepared with water, binoculars, identification books (especially for the birds), map of the Kruger Park and a Rogue hat to keep the sun out of your eyes!

You never know what you will see in the Kruger Park – but a taste of what you might see follows!!!

If you get the chance to visit South Africa – make sure that you plan a trip and preferably a few nights in the Kruger Park.  All of the gear you will need for your trip such as Safari Clothes, Safari hat, canvas travel bags, insect repellent and safari boots for those early morning walks you can book to go on from the camps are available from Kendrick Imports in the UK with free P&P.
