KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

This world renowned nature reserve is just 45 minutes drive away! Richard has an intimate knowledge of both the park and photography. Various possible routes can be designed to meet specific needs. The variety of both game and scenery is spectacular. Waterholes are plentiful and quality sightings abound. Lunch can be enjoyed at one of the rest camps, or a picnic basket can be arranged. There are various sites where picnics can be enjoyed.

 

MOHOLOHOLO REHABILITATION CENTRE

This is a special place and memories of your visit will last forever. Moholoholo cares for a wide variety of injured or poisoned wildlife and makes a significant contribution to conservation and protecting endangered species. The aim is always to reintroduce as many animals and birds to their natural environment as possible.

You will be able to interact with cheetah, vultures and other birds of prey, as well as view lion, wild dog, leopard, honey badgers and more. The tour is fascinating and takes about two hours. This is a wonderful half-day outing and is only 30 minutes drive.

 

HOEDSPRUIT ENDANGERED SPECIES CENTRE AT KAPAMA

This is another wonderful outing, just 20 minutes away. It can be combined with a visit to Moholoholo.

Tours of the facility are held on open vehicles. An introductory talk is followed by a guided drive to the various enclosures. Cheetah are the main attraction, but there are also lion, wild dog, wild cats and much else. A unique feature is the “vulture restaurant” where you can witness vultures feeding.

This is a truly magnificent  day outing, which takes in some of the most spectacular scenery our country has to offer. The incredible Blyde River Canyon is a must see.
