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

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

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 12 – Crocodile Bridge

Today was bush walk day and I was up and ready to go nice and early. I managed a picture of the beautiful moon and tried for whatever planet was in view, but without my tripod, that was a failure. There were 7 of us plus Oscar and Jaco (our guides). One couple from Australia,… Continue reading May 12 – Crocodile Bridge

May 8 – Pretoriuskop

The moon was beautiful last night with some clouds floating by it. I got an extra early start this morning after waking up at 4:30 am, but I had a great sleep, interrupted only by the sounds of Hyaenas and lions about a 1/2 hour earlier. I could hear cars going by shortly after 5:00… Continue reading May 8 – Pretoriuskop
