“Makuleke only makes up 1% of the Kruger National Park but hosts 75% of the species.”
The jewel of the northern Kruger is one of the best-kept secrets, with magnificent landscapes that are largely unexplored, with biodiversity like no other. The area is remote and doesn’t see many tourists offering guests a very authentic experience. The region is a mecca for bird watching enthusiasts! Makuleke arguably offers some of the best birding in South Africa with rare species that can’t be found elsewhere in the country. The best way to experience this diverse area is by foot on a walking safari where you get in touch with nature and see Africa for what it really is… beautiful and wild.
