Where the wild things are
PLAN YOUR TRIP TO THE KRUGER PARK
Walk with the animals • Tired of experiencing the bush from the confines of your car? Why not enter the animals’ turf on foot with a guide? There are plenty of options in the Kruger, ranging from a morning stroll near your rest camp to a rough-and-ready backpack trail. Here’s what you need to know.
Which one to choose?
Crazy about the Kruger! • Since 1988, readers Lourens and Ria Geyer have been going on camping trips to the Kruger Park. Last year, the two retirees camped in the park for 30 days! Here are their tips.
Half a century in the Kruger • Pieter du Plessis, duty manager at Mopani rest camp, has lived and worked in the park for almost 50 years. And he still can’t get enough of the bush.
The Kruger on my doorstep • If you’re lucky, you might visit the Kruger Park once or twice a year. Not so for the people who live close to the park – they get to see it once or twice a week! These Kruger locals share their favourite photos.
