“From Kruger to the Highveld” – Keith Offord

We explore two very different habitats.

Keith says:-

“The immense 20,000 km² Kruger National Park has within it an amazing mix of habitats and offers some of the best opportunities to see such a diverse range of African fauna including some of the more elusive mammal species such as Leopard, Caracal, Serval and Wild Dog.

Multiple river systems are extremely fruitful with resident hippos and crocodiles and following re-introduction fifty years ago Kruger now has an impressive population of White Rhinos. In addition the range of birds is equally large and includes many which are found only on the eastern side of Southern Africa.

This talk also explores the nearby forested highveld of the northern Drakensberg – home to a completely different range of species.”

This illustrated presentation will take place at Kingsmead School Hall, Bertram Drive, Hoylake, CH47 0LL. This is not a ticket event – please just come along.
