8 Amazing Aerial Photos of Kruger National Park

On my most recent trip to South Africa, I had the opportunity to spend 10 unforgettable nights in the South African bush taking incredible aerial photos of Kruger National Park for my web show and a South Africa promo film project. Kruger National Park is the best place in the country to experience wildlife. On any given day you can experience the thrill of a kill or see each of the Big Five in only one afternoon game drive.

Before this trip I bought a DJI Phantom Vision 2+ so that we could get aerial footage and photography for our films. I wish I had known more about the strict regulations against drones (because of poaching) in Kruger, because of this we were very limited with locations where we could send the drone up. The places where I was able to shoot provided sweeping views of the park during dry season. Here are 8 of my favorite aerial photos of Kruger National Park:
