Buffalo are relatively easy to find in the Kruger Park, but if you struggle to find them on your safaris or you feel your images leave much to be desired, then this eBook is for you!

We have been visiting the Kruger Park for more than twenty years and we and our co-author, Trevor Barnett, have had so many buffalo sightings on our self-drive safaris that we have lost count! In this eBook we provide all our tips and techniques on how to find these most dangerous of the big-five animals and then how to best photograph them.

The majority of these buffalo photographs were captured on self-drive safaris, on normal tourist roads, when we were on our vacations, which are anything from a few days over a long weekend, to annual holidays of 14-17 days duration.

"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behavior, reading the signs and getting yourself in the best position for the shot. 
There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
