July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

I had been back home for almost a month and found that I was missing seeing critters and being in nature.  I could tell from the posts on the Riding Mountain National Park Facebook page that there were plenty of baby critters being seen there and decided I should see some Canadian critters and hopefully… Continue reading July 6 and 7 – Riding Mountain National Park

June 9 – 10: The Journey Home

My last African sunrise. The morning started off cloudy and the sun was fighting to show itself again, but made a nice early morning sky. This is my last few hours in the park and I am taking a very slow drive to Skukuza, where I will have a late breakfast or an early lunch… Continue reading June 9 – 10: The Journey Home

June 8 – Berg en Dal

It was another foggy morning today, but it soon cleared as the sun came up. It had obviously been clear last night with this beautiful moon showing itself above my bungalow.

I had plenty of time to get there, but I left… Continue reading June 7 – Berg en Dal

By the time I got to the spot, he had disappeared. Next was a… Continue reading June 6 – Skukuza to Berg en Dal

June 5 – Skukuza

Today started off with Hyaenas at a den, and I was up close and personal to the family. There were another couple of vehicles there too and the Hyaenas were going around each one (just to be fair, I’m sure). They were almost too close for some of the pictures, but I’ve saved the best… Continue reading June 5 – Skukuza

June 4 – Skukuza

Bright and early this morning I was on my way to Lake Panic. I wasn’t sure exactly where it was, but the lady in the shop said to turn right at the stop – so I did. I noticed only a couple of other cars turned right, so I was hopeful that they were also… Continue reading June 4 – Skukuza
