setting the scene

“KRUGER MAGAZINE has a dual purpose – to entertain and also to educate.” It’s the holiday season and summer in the Greater Kruger region, which means lush vegetation, the return of migrating birds, and sightings of newborn animals everywhere – impala are especially abundant. The first rains have fallen, but we need good rains to restore the park to its beautiful best. We hope you are reading this issue of KRUGER MAGAZINE while on a well-deserved vacation – preferably in the Greater Kruger region itself! If you are only dreaming of the bush, however, we trust the magazine will whet your appetite for your next visit. You’ll find a host of informative and entertaining articles in our Summer issue – including a new column, ‘Favourite Spots’. Visit our Facebook group and tell…

from the publisher’s pen

Normally, a column like this would highlight certain articles that a publisher personally finds interesting. For me, this is probably the hardest thing to do, as each contribution is awaited with anticipation – much like seeing presents under a Christmas tree. You know they are for you and you can’t wait to open them! Our contributors are our ‘givers of presents’ four times a year. But, unlike presents that give you such a high when you open them, ours have a prolonged shelf-life. I am specifically referring to articles that mention our chosen deserving project in each issue. We cannot wait to see the results of our copy sales to start giving back and share that good feeling with you. The inaugural issue of KRUGER MAGAZINE, which was distributed in September, will have…

introducing favourite spots

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 new regular column, FAVOURITE SPOTS. From issue 3, the editorial team will select the Top 5 ‘FAVOURITE SPOTS’ shared by the members of our Facebook community before publishing the next issue of KRUGER MAGAZINE. Facebook members will enjoy the opportunity to vote for the best entry, which will then be published in KRUGER MAGAZINE. Everyone has their favourite spots in the Greater Kruger, and I couldn't wait to share my spot: Lake Panic, near Skukuza. It so happens that Quintus’ spot is also Biyamiti Weir! For this issue, we’ve approached Graeme to share his story with all our readers! Biyamiti Weir – My favourite spot…

biggest single donation for f4r

The Flying 4 Rhino and Conservation Trust was formed by a group of like-minded conservationists who felt they needed to do something to fight against the massive surge of poaching (specifically rhino poaching) in South Africa. The objectives of ‘Flying 4 Rhino’ are to provide free air support and policing patrols to anti-poaching units within reserves and parks, as well as on private land (essentially wherever a population of endangered species exists). At present, ‘Flying 4 Rhino’ covers approximately 180 000 hectares of land. The Trust works purely on donations from partner organisations, individuals and corporate companies. Raising the funds to keep our aircraft in the sky is the single biggest challenge we face, besides doing our best to keep our breeding populations of rhino and other species alive. One particular individual who…

awesome orpen

“Orpen is one of the preferred ca for those who enjoy hearing the night sounds so typical of the bushveld.” Midway between Acornhoek and Hoedspruit, in the province of Limpopo, is the Orpen gate on the western border of the Kruger National Park. The camp was named after Eileen Orpen, who bought seven farms during the 1930s and donated the land to the Park. Orpen is one of the preferred camps for those who enjoy hearing the night sounds so typical of the bushveld. The camp is one of the smaller camps in KNP, giving it that special secluded and private feel, and everything is within walking distance, with no crowds or traffic. There is a well-stocked Park’s Shop filled with all the necessities – from biltong to Amarula and more. Although there…
