Kruger Photo Safaris
There’s no doubt that the Kruger has a lot to offer and anyone can experience amazing photo opportunities on a self drive, but on Kruger photo safaris with African Memory Photo Safaris you’ll have the opportunity to get closer to nature without the other private cars, tar roads or necessity of sitting in traffic jams every time an animal is in the near vicinity. Two qualified field guides will accompany you within a private reserve, where the option to drive off–road allows us to get closer to the Big 5 to get the best photos. This is unique to the private reserve and is not possible in the rest of the Kruger National Park.
Our Kruger Photo Safaris take’s place on a 23,000-hectare private reserve inside the Greater Kruger National Park, bordering the famous Sabi Sands and Timbivati where there no fences and animals can roam freely. Guests also have the opportunity to go out before sunrise and to return on drives late in the evening, using a spot light on nocturnal animals.
The Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It covers an area of 19,485 square km (7,523 sq mi) and is located in northeastern part of South Africa and extends 360 km (220 mi) from north to south and 65 km (40 mi) from east to west.
The Kruger National Park is home to some 147 species of South African mammals. The Kruger is famous for the Big 5: elephants, rhino, lions, leopards and buffalo and there’s more than 500 bird species and the Approximately 200 of these are migratory birds from Eurasia and North Africa. Migrants are present from November to April and there are numerous bat species a 114 reptiles, lots of flowers and more a photographers dream location.
