This simple list is an easy to implement guide while travelling or at home. Take what you can from it and be a change in your household, community, or the place you are visiting.

Kragga Kamma Game Park

 

Kragga Kamma Game Park is about a 30 minute drive from central Port Elizabeth and should be on any visitors sight-seeing list.

Daniel had visited the Park with his family in their early years in South Africa. This was my first time. At the entrance gate, we had a quick toilet break and spotted a white rhino with its calf on the hillside – a sign it was going to be a wonderful day! After paying R80 per person at the gate, and ready with a pen and animal sighting checklist, we drove into the Park. No matter how often I see animals in the wild, I love the experience.
