EcoTraining’s Kruger National Park camp is situated in the Makuleke Concession, between the Limpopo and Luvuvhu Rivers. This is a true wilderness area, steeped in history and situated in the remotest part of Kruger, in one of its most biologically diverse areas.
Scenery ranges from the beautiful, quietly flowing Luvuvhu River, shaded by nyala trees and fever tree forests, and teeming with hippos and crocodiles, to the awesome Lanner Gorge, palm-fringed wetlands and rocky outcrops with thousand-year-old baobab trees.
All the wildlife that one would expect to see in a great national park such as Kruger can potentially be encountered on the concession. Plains game such as zebra, kudu and impala are common, while lions and leopards are a special sighting. Herds of elephant, a few rhinoceros, African buffalo, nyala antelope and also seldom-seen animals such as eland and bushpig can be seen.
This part of Kruger is known to be one of the best birding areas in the park, and is home to rarely seen species such as the Pel’s fishing owl, Three-banded Courser and grey-headed parrot.
