  A hot Kruger National Park
by cleocat

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you are not used to a lot of sun in winter remember to bring sunblock. In winter the sun can be hot between 11:00 and 14:00.
In summer the sun can still burn you at 17: 00. Most of our winter days are sunny especially in Gauteng and Mpumalanga and the Kruger Park is hot even in wintertime.
a few years ago we went at the end of April thinking it would be cooler. Not true. We put te babies in cold water and gave them packets of ice to play with.
