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. With this being my last full day in Kruger, I was having a hard time trying to decide which way to go. I had… Continue reading June 8 – Berg en Dal

June 6 – Skukuza to Berg en Dal

Moving day again today. I was pretty much packed up last night, so all I had to do was load up the car and be on my way. First sighting soon after leaving the gate was a Giraffe crossing the road. 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

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

June 3 – Orpen to Skukuza

I was on the road shortly after 6:00 am as usual. What was not usual was my first sighting. Just a few minutes from camp 3 male Lions walked across the road and lay down right beside it. One was so close to the road that I was afraid his tail was on it and… Continue reading June 3 – Orpen to 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
