Southern Kruger is the most accessible area of the park with abundant wildlife (less skittish than in the north) and a wide choice of accommodation. Vegetation tends to be dense especially in summer due to the higher rainfall in this region but this is the season when herbivores give birth and migrant birds are at their peak. Animals tend to congregate round water in winter (May to October) and the vegetation is thinner. This is a great base for spotting elephants, lions and buffalo as well as general game such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and tsessebe antelope.
