Herds of impala can also be spotted along the road or down on the banks of the river. We continue our game drive stopping off for breakfast along the way at one of the picnic areas. After breakfast we continue our 7 day Kruger safari with a game drive, spotting herds of elephant, zebra and wildebeest, as well as some of our 500 species of birds found in that area.
