I've been to Kruger twice now & each time I think I have seen as many birds as I did animals.

Thanks Markisclueless I'm certain you will add to your list. & looking at your gear list you are well set up for Kruger.

Are you going with a tour operator or self drive?

When were there it had been dry for far too long. WHILE we were there it bucketed down! Water holes formed overnight & the animals (&birds) flocked to them.
