Drives In and Around the Skukuza Camp Vicinity in the Kruger National Park


In June 2006 I completed a 5 day stay in the Park and did a number of drives mainly in the Satara region but to get there I stayed one night at Skukuza camp. This page is a list of the drives completed in the Skukuza area which includes a description of one of the most incredible sightings I've ever made. Of course I only touched the surface of this major and spectacular region. Over the next few months I will also complete these drives as part of my total project to cover all publicly accessible roads in the Kruger National Park.
