However when a safari does happen, Kruger can be far from quiet with great animal sightings.
As there are fewer people in the park we have to work harder ourselves to find the animals amongst the lush vegetation, but they often come out into the open for us, a reward for patience and perseverance.
I'm back in Kruger tomorrow, for the first time this month and these photos from a January 4 years ago are winding me up in anticipation!
