Kruger has a list of more than 500 birds, some of which are not found anywhere else in South Africa. Tailor-made birding safaris are available from both Rhino Post Safari Lodge and Plains Camp. Birders can look forward to pursuing the Big Six: Ground Hornbill, Kori Bustard, Lappet-faced Vulture, Martial Eagle, Pel’s Fishing Owl and the Saddle-bill Stork.
In addition, Hornbills, Starlings, Vultures, Rollers, Bee-eaters and Shrikes make this a prime birdwatching area. Raptor viewing is extremely rewarding with Bateleur, Martial, Black-breasted Snake, Brown Snake, African Hawk, African Fish and Tawny Eagles seen regularly. In summer birders can spot the Wahlberg, Steppe and Lesser Spotted.
