It has been a number of years since I was fortunate enough to visit the African bush and I had really started to miss it. As both a lover of nature and an avid photographer of landscape and animals there are few places that have managed to capture my attention in the way that Southern Africa has done.
My most recent excursion took me on a wildlife experience like no other. I spent 5 days walking in the far northern tip of the Kruger National Park,in the Makuleke concession entering via the most northern of the parks entrances: Pafuri Gate. An area that is as much about the landscape as the animals that inhabit it, making it as magical place for someone like me as I think you could find on the planet.
There are parts of the Kruger and definitely other parts of South Africa where the game sighting will be more bountiful. There are certainly places where the scenery will, to some, perhaps rival or beat what I saw but I would be extremely surprised if any other could match the experience of walking with elephants in a setting quite so exquisite.
