The majority of these wildflower 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. We also captured some of the images inside the camps and at picnic spots.

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

Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information.
