Hello again. Due to the size of the Kruger Park it is tricky to decide on where to stay on your visit. Hopefully these hints will make it easier to decide.
The southern section of the park from Malenane to Skukuza is well known for its game viewing and birding. The south has a few large dams and the Sabie River ensures for good game viewing, especially in winter. Lake Panic Hide just outside Skukuza is also a great spot for birders and photographers alike. Road networks are well developed and consist of asphalt and gravel roads. The south does get crowded though, at times.
The central section from Skukuza north to Letaba tend to be less crowded and game viewing is good all round. It is a larger area and the road networks are not as well developed as the south. At Letaba rest camp you can also visit the elephant hall of fame.
From Letaba north to Pafuri is the northern section and one of my personal favourites. It is almost as big as south and central combined and has a considerable lack of roads, thus high profile sightings are few and far between, but this does not take away the sheer beauty of this region.
Stay tuned for my more in depth blogs on each section that will follow soon. Until then
