THE ASTOUNDING BIRDLIFE OF THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK. The Korck Publishing Wall Poster “Newman’s Birds of the Kruger National Park 1: A–K  – (Classic Edition)”

  • Virtually all visitors to Southern Africa visit the Kruger National Park where more than 500 bird species are to be found at  various times during the year.  Southern Africa has over 900  bird species found throughout the entire region so, in fact,  more than half the total number of bird species found in the  entire southern African region are to be found in the Kruger  National Park in either a particular habitat or time of year or location.  This is remarkable considering that the park occupies  only 19 485 sq km.

  • This poster is the first part of two posters divided alphabetically 1: A–K and 2: K–Z which together illustrate 216 species of  the birds most commonly found in the Kruger National Park.

  • Among the bird families represented on this poster are: barbet, bee-eater, boubou bulbul, bunting, canary, chat, cisticola,  cormorant, cuckoo, dikkop, dove, duck, eagle, firefinch flycatcher, francolin, goose, goshawk, guineafowl,  heron, hornbill,  kestrel, kingfisher.

  • The Kruger National Park is successful in attracting a huge range of bird species because of the wide variety of habitats and  food sources it offers. Such habitats range from bush areas, man-made dams and mini marshes, rocky hills, cliffs, gorges, and riverine forests. True sandveld areas are present in the north-east and southern sections of the Park . Among the best  bird-watching areas in the Park are the riverine forest or riverine bush  occurring along the 17 river banks – a prime habitat  for many varied species. The open grassveld regions in the north are attractive to many species such as bee-eaters, rollers, shrikes, cuckoos and storks. Also in the northern  region the great areas of mopane bush , after rains, when the mopane bushes are in fresh leaf, are hugely attractive to birds.   The camps themselves are great viewing places for birds being  situated with good river views with trees, many fruit bearing, flowers and shrubs all providing birds with ideal habitats.

  • The two Kruger National Park bird posters are both outstandingly attractive posters and together present  a wonderful  window on Southern Africa’s amazing birdlife.
