June 7 – Berg en Dal

Today was the day to meet Gerda, Janine and Christy at the Skukuza golf course restaurant for lunch. I met Janine last time I was here 5 years ago, but although I’ve known Gerda and Christy for many years, this was our first meeting. I had plenty of time to get there, but I left… Continue reading June 7 – 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 2 – Orpen

I started off early this morning with the usual Impalas, Wildebeests and Zebras. The Impalas were too far from the road for pictures with the early morning lighting – but I saw them. 🙂 Then, the first of a few roadblocks and something different to start the day. Two Hyaenas were walking down the H7… Continue reading June 2 – Orpen

May 31 – Talamati to Orpen

I heard the Lion roars early this morning again, so was up and heading out shortly after 6:00 am. I did not find the lions. There was a little bit of fog in places, but thin little lines of it while everything else was clean. The picture almost looks like water. Today I only saw… Continue reading May 31 – Talamati to Orpen

May 30 – Talamati

I was off to a leisurely start this morning – so it was light enough for a picture of the first critter and that was a Waterbuck. Next was a family of Southern Ground Hornbills holding a road block. Unfortunately, I was the 2nd car in the lineup, so my pictures were taken through the… Continue reading May 30 – Talamati

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
