setting the scene

As we head towards autumn, we can look forward to cooler weather as well as a reduction in the density of the vegetation in the Greater Kruger region – let’s face it, it’s not quite as easy to spot animals at this time of year! On the plus side, those you do see are generally in peak condition and the Greater Kruger region looks beautiful in autumn: still green, yet burnished with the gorgeous colours of the red bushwillow (Combretum apiculatum) and the white kirkia (Kirkia acuminata)... There is so much to appreciate in the Greater Kruger region that one barely knows where to start – but KRUGER MAGAZINE strives to enhance your journey with nature! In this issue, you can learn more about the wondrous marula tree, every single part…

Following the excitement on KRUGER MAGAZINE’s Facebook group when Graeme Mitchley shared the sequence of events at a leopard sighting at Biyamiti Weir, Meldt van der Spuy conceptualised our regular column, FAVOURITE SPOTS. For issue 3, the editorial team selected the Top 5 ‘FAVOURITE SPOTS’ shared by the members of our Facebook community and KRUGER MAGAZINE Facebook members then enjoyed the opportunity to vote for their favourite entry.

feedback on our first deserving project

From the outset, one of the main purposes of publishing KRUGER MAGAZINE has been to be able to give back to nature by way of pledging 15% of our total net copy sales revenue to a deserving project featured in each issue. Here, we provide feedback on the project we featured in our inaugural issue, Issue 1 – Spring 2017. This will become a regular insert in each issue of KRUGER MAGAZINE. It is with great pride – and extreme humility – that we report on our privilege in being able to donate well-deserved funds to The Fitzpatrick Institute of African Ornithology at UCT, which manages the Martial Eagle project. We contacted project manager Megan Murgatroyd with the good news, and received her feedback: “Thank you, KRUGER MAGAZINE – we are thrilled with the…

superb berg-en-dal

Situated in the southwest of the Kruger National Park and only 11km from Malelane Gate, Berg-en-Dal lies in the beautiful mountain bushveld of the Mpumalanga province. The new Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport lies just 25km from Nelspruit, which is half-an-hour's drive from Malelane Gate off the R570 and N4. Berg-en-Dal opened in 1984 and is known as one of the new-generation camps in the Kruger National Park, offering visitors outstanding accommodation and lodging facilities. Situated on the bank of the Matjulu Spruit, and set within natural bush, the gardens are planted with flowering shrubs and aloes, and great care is taken to preserve the natural vegetation in the camp area, which attracts a variety of grazers within the camp. Birdlife is exceptional in this woodland area, and if you are an…
