After two years of lockdown restrictions, visitors took advantage of South Africa's low infection numbers and relaxed COVID-19 entry requirements to enjoy a safari in the fresh air, sunshine and wide-open spaces of South Africa's sprawling Kruger National Park.
Mornings and afternoons were spent in open-safari vehicles on game drives in search of wildlife and evenings were spent gathered beneath the stars at night, sharing impressions of Kruger's beautiful scenery and animal sightings. There was a lot to talk about. From rare cheetah cub and shy bushbaby sightings to the Marico sunbird with its brilliant colours and a female leopard with two different coloured eyes, our March 2022 Kruger safari highlights were superb. Scroll down for more of our favourite sightings.
March is a great time of year to go on a safari in Kruger. The park is less crowded and the bush is slowly beginning to thin out, making it easier to spot game. If you're thinking of booking a Kruger safari for March 2023, take a look at our Early Bird Specials on Wild Wings Safaris Kruger Tours. For more information on the current entry requirements and travel protocols for popular African safari destinations, please consult our blog African Safari Travel: COVID-19 Entry Requirements by Country for regular updates.
