Value add to a Kruger trip
Excellent book that really added value to our Kruger holiday. Two suggested improvements for the next version: (1) the A3 size is beautiful as a coffee table book but not as practical in a car; consider A4 option with rugged binding. (2) ensure the detail mentioned in a given road section is indicated on the map that accompanies the section. Currently snippets from the larger map is used that does not always display the level of detail discussed in the text. Despite these suggestions, it remains a great book that I would happily recommend.
It's brilliant. It will certainly enhance a visit to Kruger. I can highly recommend it. Just two requests for the 3rd edition would be to show the main camps on the Geology Map page 241 and the EcoZone map on page 242. Thank you for such a wonderful publication.
Kruger Self-Drive — Second Edition
It’s a very nice and well thought out book. It’s not only a drive guide but has amazing information to accompany the maps It has taken our drives which we do regularly to another level. It will be our guide on our upcoming trip to the north and the fever tree forest. Congratulations on a fabulous publication.
Our drives were amazing, we used it for Tamboti, Skukuza, Pretoriuskop and Crocodile Bridge. The photos in this book are such special shots and it took us on some amazing sightings where we were the only vehicles in sight. Also, this checklist is AMAZING! We can't wait for our next trip to explore some more. New bucketlist: Travel every route in this book.
This book will definitely make our future visits to Kruger more pleasant. Great info
