SAN Parks Handy Hints and Tips

  • All accommodation, ablution and kitchen facilities are serviced by cleaning staff on a daily basis
  • Accommodation prices do not include meals
  • Vehicle fuel is available in the main rest camps in Kruger
  • Bedding is supplied in all accommodation except for self camping
  • Cooking utensils and refrigeration are provided in most accommodation units, exceptions will be indicated while booking
  • No animals may be brought into a National Park
  • Plan your trip – do not try and cover too great a distance.  The Kruger National Park is a massive tract of land and frequently visitors try to cover too much ground. Slow travel and regular stopping produces much more action than covering a lot of ground.
  • Early mornings and evening time are usually the most productive game viewing periods
  • Remember to bring a camera, binoculars, bird and wildlife reference books, and a hat and sunscreen lotion.
  • Remember to take along medicine such as antihistamine and lotion for insect stings and bites
  • Do not leave any food unattended as thieving monkeys and baboons are a constant threat

Species on the Move

An International Conference Series

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.


Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.
