setting the scene

“In the Winter issue of KRUGER MAGAZINE, we celebrate our gentle giants. Winter in Greater Kruger often means exceptional sightings – definitely worth braving the cold mornings and evenings for (although a visitor from the UK recently said our winter temperatures are positively balmy compared to what he is used to!). Clear, dry winter days can be among the most precious in Greater Kruger, especially for photographers, who love the evocative quality of the light. If you’re lucky enough to get to the Greater Kruger for a midwinter break, take advantage of the low humidity and the fact that there are few mosquitoes to annoy you! Walking safaris are particularly appealing, thanks to the sparse vegetation. In the Winter issue of KRUGER MAGAZINE, we celebrate our gentle giants. Dr Ian John Whyte…

from the publisher’s pen

We have had quite a few emails and letters from readers, which means that we are conversing with you, and that is wonderful. In our Autumn issue, we asked you to tell us about your first visit to the Greater Kruger – and we received quite a bit of feedback. One letter in particular stood out and we decided to publish it on page 21. It is from one of our more senior readers and is therefore priceless! If we do not share some of these memories, details about those days will be lost forever. So please keep writing or emailing – and if you happen to have photographs, send them along. Speaking of the past – read about a wonderful opportunity to get involved in digging for treasures from a…

favourite spots

2km road from Shingwedzi Camp – My favourite spot! Picture the following: a short tar road lined with gigantic, shady nyala, leadwood and jackalberry trees. Through these magnificent trees, you can see a dry riverbed with a few pools of water – the Shingwedzi River! The above description can be of only one place: the 2km tar road just outside the main gate of Shingwedzi Camp, in northern Kruger – my favourite spot in KNP. In the early morning, when you arrive in front of the camp gate, you will most probably be the only vehicle there...only you and your favourite piece of Kruger tar road ahead. And yes, it is indeed peace, peace on earth, on this short 2km. When the gate opens, we drive slowly, very slowly… The local baboon troop is my…

feedback on our second deserving project

What a wonderful journey we are having – and thank you, readers, for supporting us, enabling us to fulfil one of the main purposes of publishing KRUGER MAGAZINE: to give back by donating 15% of our nett copy sales to a deserving project featured in each issue. Once again, we have the privilege of donating well-deserved funds to a deserving project: in this case, the Northern Kruger Wild Dog Project, conducted by EWT, which we featured in our Summer issue (Issue 2), distributed in December 2017. We contacted project manager David Marneweck, the Carnivore Conservation Programme Manager and Chair: Wild Dog Advisory Group of South Africa (WAG-SA), with the good news. This was his feedback: “The Carnivore Conservation Programme at the Endangered Wildlife Trust would like to thank KRUGER MAGAZINE for the support…

light up the darkness

The fight against poaching is relentless and all-consuming. The dedicated personnel of SANParks tackle the onslaught every day – particularly the brave rangers who are the ‘tip of the spear’ and come face-to-face with unscrupulous criminals in the bushveld. Many of these incursions take place under the concealment of darkness, as the criminals hope to remain undetected and make a quick escape. Although there is technology to counter such incursions, being able to ‘light up the darkness’ during those crucial moments, when contact in the bush is established, plays a vital role. To assist SANParks rangers in their fight against poaching, NiteCore has donated a large number of high-intensity tactical flashlights to rangers. These flashlights are not only super-bright but are also easy to rifle-mount, designed with tactical users in mind. Donors Louis…
