Birdlife of the Kruger

On our latest trip to the Kruger I was lucky enough to have some close encounters with the resident birdlife.  Below you can see a white-browed robin-chat, a Cape glossy starling and a crested barbet.

Sundowners

The Kruger’s Wilderness Trails include a daily morning hike and a shorter evening walk or sundowner.  After a tiring morning, our group opted for sundowners the first evening.  Our guides drove us to a tranquil viewpoint, from which we could enjoy the sunset over one of the few rivers which have survived the drought.

Nyalaland Wilderness Trail

In September we visited the Nyalaland Wilderness Trail, an isolated tented camp near Punda Maria Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park. The camp was in a beautiful and serene setting, overlooking a lovely river. A must-do for any reasonably fit nature lovers… who don’t mind a couple of days without electricity or running water!
