Trip Summary

If you are visiting our beautiful part of the world and want to go out with a professional birding guide, then our local day trips are just the ticket. The Southern Kruger is an obvious choice, and we can offer trips from Crocodile Bridge, Malelane, Numbi and Kruger gates. These are done in an open-sided safari vehicle, offering the best viewing and an exciting safari experience. We can do pick-ups at hotels and resorts close to the gates, or meet at one of the above-mentioned gates. 

These are ideal for keen birders, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts - experience Kruger under the wing of a professional guide!

The map below is just a sample route, the exact route will depend on season, weather, target species etc.
