May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie

Last night I saw my first Bushbucks as they came into camp. It was already getting dark and they must have made it in just before the gate closed.  I only got a picture of 1 of them as they settled down to sleep.   This morning it was time to pack up and move… Continue reading May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie

May 10 – Pretoriuskop to Crocodile Bridge

After the fog wore off this morning, it turned out to be another beautiful day and it was time to pack up and head for Crocodile Bridge.

Aug 13 – Berg en Dal to Crocodile Bridge

If you remember yesterday’s saga, you will know that I no longer had a spare tyre for my car and I had to wait until 9am to call the Avis guy to make arrangements. While waiting, I walked along the Rhino trail around the perimeter of the camp and I had great sightings.  🙂 I… Continue reading Aug 13 – Berg en Dal to Crocodile Bridge
