Here is a gallery of some of the rhino photographs that we, the authors of the Photographer's Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park, have captured on our many visits to the world-famous Kruger National Park.

If you struggle to find rhinos on your safaris or you feel your images are not impressive, 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 many sightings of white rhinos on our self-drive safaris. The black rhino, however, is the challenge! In over 20 years we have just 5 black rhino sightings and Trevor just 3 sightings.  

In this eBook we provide all our tips on how to find these endangered animals and then how to best photograph them.

The majority of these rhino 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.

Photographers Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park

"It's an excellent publication and a snip at the price. Very comprehensive as it covers so many options for places to stay in and around KNP, gives good ideas on the best places to stop for photo opportunities and lots of hints & tips on how to get better photographs. 

It's a good read too and it's like the biggest trip report I have ever read, so I think those who have been before will enjoy it as much as I have in anticipation of my first visit!"  - Dave Williams, Llandudno, Wales

"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
