I'd not been to Kruger in years and then in 2010 was lucky enough to visit in April and November.

November was beautiful with the bush being lush and green and yet we saw the most animals we had ever seen!

We saw elephants every day of our 5 day visit. I was a bit dissapointed with our buffalo sightings in that they were mostly individual animals until our last day while on our way leaving the park we came across 2 enormous buffalo herds numbering in the hundreds!

Our second day saw 4 lions resting in the shade right next to the H1-5 between Olifants and Letaba.

Close to Mopani, we saw our first ever leopard in Kruger. What an experience!

We also a black mamba crossing the road.

Mopani is a good area!
by: Anton

Don't forget that the experts also tell us that Mopani has no game, yet you see a leopard - the most elusive animal!

The Super-Seven in 5 days!

Great sightings Alfred - and in November when people are told by the 'experts' that we won't see much - well done!

"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 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
