Birdwatching at Lake Panic

Lake Panic Bird Hide is a lovely lazy way to watch wildlife in Kruger National Park. You’ll get great views of hippos and crocs, bushbuck often visit and some people have been lucky enough to see leopard from the hide. Just sit back, relax and watch the herons, jacanas, thick-knees, kingfishers, ducks, cormorants, weaver birds, dragonflies and damsels pass by. Some even pose for the camera.

  1. What a lovely way to watch birds! The Kingfishers are very beautiful and so different from what I am used to seeing.
