Being in Kruger National Park is at once peaceful and exhilarating. It is wonderful to be disconnected from the buzz of the internet and telephones. Just take in the unique sounds, sights, smells, and the air of the park. Nothing beats the excitement of being the ones to spot a leopard or hear a herd of 200 buffalo thundering past the car. There is truly a satisfaction and excitement in spotting animals on your own, feeling like you are really in a wildlife documentary. All you need is a car, binoculars, and a good camera. You're one step away from starting your safari adventure.
