Highlights of South Africa

Northern Kruger

Scroll

The remote Northern Kruger is the driest and least visited area of the park with fewer tarmac roads than elsewhere and more dramatic scenery. Wildlife is more sparse and skittish than in the south, but tend to congregate around the rivers and water holes especially in the drier winter months. Wild dogs sightings are more common in the far north, the dogs using termite mounds as dens when they produce their pups from May to July. This region is dominated by mopane trees with baobabs becoming a feature towards the north. Roan, nyala and sable antelope, Liechtenstein’s hartebeest and eland may be spotted in this region. The Luvuvhu River in the far north provides outstanding bird watching including Pel’s fishing owls, silvery-cheeked hornbills, narina trogons, broad-billed rollers and swallow-tailed bee-eaters. Three-banded coursers are likely to be spotted between Pafuri Gate and Punda Maria Camp. The Northern Kruger is also important historically with various San art as well as sites with stone- and iron age artefacts.
