The Week in Pictures : Kruger is Crazy with Leopards

This edition of Week in Pictures we concentrate solely on the wonders of the Greater Kruger, a region comprising mixed zones of vegetation and remarkable landscapes. Rivers course through the various reserves and give rise to riverine vegetation laden with reeds and lush tropical foliage.
