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

June 1 – Orpen

It was pretty chilly this morning, but the 3 of us on the drive along with the guide were hopefully of some great sightings. Unfortunately, it was just the usual critters and not actually many of them. Elephant, Bushbaby, Zebras, Impalas, Wildebeests, Giraffe and then Warthogs as we were almost back at camp. The only… Continue reading June 1 – Orpen

May 23 – Letaba

I took the morning drive this morning and as usual lately, there were only 4 of us on it. Too bad they don’t have smaller vehicles available for this drive when there are so few taking it. We saw Impalas (of course) and Wildebeests before it was light enough to take pictures, so our first… Continue reading May 23 – Letaba

May 22 – Olifants to Letaba

I made myself the usual oatmeal and rusk breakfast (with cranberries). After eating, I made a flask of coffee and wandered down to the overlook to wait for the sunrise. It was a usual sunrise. Since I have been a bit north, there are absolutely no clouds in the sky at all, so the sunrise… Continue reading May 22 – Olifants to Letaba

May 21 – Olifants

Yesterday afternoon, I took a couple of pictures of the Aloes that grow here and a couple of the Squirrels. The Squirrels were on the ground when I saw them – so I guess they are Ground Squirrels. 🙂     I planned my route last night to drive this morning, so set out at… Continue reading May 21 – Olifants

May 20 – Olifants

I was up and ready to go in plenty of time for the drive this morning. While waiting I took a picture of the moon.   Three of us were registered and then one more from last night’s drive asked if she could come along too. Luckily, the driver was the same this morning as… Continue reading May 20 – Olifants

May 18 – Satara

I started off this foggy morning with a Helmeted Guinea Fowl road block. Guess they heard that I mentioned that I hadn’t been seeing them around Satara. The sun soon rose with a beautiful sun rise and cleared up the fog for a nice drive. Today, I had decided to drive south a bit to… Continue reading May 18 – Satara
