May 2019 issue is out!

Posted on 23 April 2019

In this, our special Kruger issue, Chris Davies embarks on a family-reunion journey to the park’s northern reaches, Catherine Hofmeyr explores the popular south, while Harriet Nimmo presents alternative activities and behind-the-scenes action, including the current poaching struggles. In the spirit of Greater Kruger, Michelle Hardie visits nearby Sábiè Game Park in Mozambique and Keri Harvey looks at the latest developments in Zinave National Park.

Enjoy our bumper Kruger issue!

Catherine Hofmeyr – Essential Kruger, page 70

With two-million hectares to choose from, you need to be either retired with a trust fund or very picky in Kruger. There’s a quintessential route linking Skukuza, Satara and Lower Sabie that
everyone should do –  and then do again and again…

Harriet Nimmo – Alternative Kruger, page 82

Who heads up the park’s 700-plus rangers? Who researches and helps threatened species to ensure their survival? And who’s on call to treat humans? Zoologist Harriet meets five dedicated Kruger personalities.

Keri Harvey – Mozambique, page 88

Our neighbour is on the road to restoring its wildlife heritage. We went on a recce to Zinave National Park and privately owned Sábiè Game Park, both of which are setting the pace for wildlife conservation. They have an abundance of game and are still off the regular tourist route, so you’ll get a true wilderness experience with no cars in sight.

Allison Foat – Durch Barging, page 96

For laid-back leisure at its best, exploring Holland’s waterways is a surprisingly affordable European holiday for wanderlusting South Africans and Allison rounds up a group of friends to go boating.
