In February this year we visited Kruger for the first time, staying at 4 camps in 9 days, all in the south/middle of the park, from Lower Sabie to Letaba. We had some great advice from this forum as well as the SanParks forum, and had a fantastic experience. Just one downside to visiting the park in February was the fact that it being late summer, most of the animals were spread far and wide, and in some areas it was difficult viewing due to the long grass and vegitation.
This February we are thinking of returning to Kruger, this time exploring the northern parts of the park, staying at Mopani, Shingedzi and Sirheni for example. We think this might be a different experience being a dryer and more arid area, though we understand that the game is a lot less prevelent in this part of the park, and that Lions and other cats are scarce, and even non excistant so far north.
We would really appreciate any advice on visiting northern Kruger in February, ie. is it a good time to view game, and will we be disapointed after such a fantastic experience on our first visit.
