In order to keep my blog post short, I’ve decided to separately sum up a few tips and tricks (personal experience).
Camping: When it comes to camping, I can only say that the ground at the Kruger National Park and also at Hlane NP is very hard (it might be because of the missing rain?). Therefore, it is quite difficult to set up a tent at this time of the year. At night it is also recommendable to have a better sleeping mat than you would normally need on grass. It was more chilly than we had expected, in particular early in the mornings. We were freezing in our thin sleeping bags covered with a fleece blanket.
Food supply: Restaurants and shops at the Kruger NP are a bit expensive. Especially the shops charged way more than you would normally pay at Spar and Pick’n’Pay.
