We heard so many stories about game veiwing at Kruger national park. stories like you can only spot the big five animals on the southern part of the park or you have to visit the park during a specific period for you to see big five animals. My family and I have been visiting the park every december since 2004.We usually start at Mopani and move towards the southern part of the park until crocodile bridge.

Throughout the years we enjoyed our stay there and were able to spot all big five animals every time we visit the park (in our own vehicle). For us there is no other national park like the Kruger........

So true

You are so right Xikombiso - the big-five can be seen anywhere in the park - I think it's the tour guides that try and make out that it's difficult to see the animals and you need their 'expertise' to find the game!

"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
