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

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 29 – Talamati

I heard Lions roaring early this morning, but no sign or noise from them once I was on my way. The sun made a pretty decent attempt at making a nice sunrise this morning. Before I actually saw any critters, I met a couple of Rangers and their dog walking along the road. I stopped… Continue reading May 29 – Talamati

May 26 – Tamboti

It was a very foggy morning and this time, it didn’t go away when the sun rose. First sightings after my foggy morning picture from my deck, but too dark and foggy to take pictures were a single male Impala, Helmeted Guineafowl road block, herd of Impalas, tiny mouse running across the road and some… Continue reading May 26 – Tamboti

May 25 – Letaba to Tamboti

First critters this morning were Helmeted Guinea Fowls trying a road block, but they had some problems. There were enough of them – about 2 dozen, but they were divided into 3 groups, so were easily dispursed. Amazingly enough, there were no Impalas until much later today. First critter once it was light enough to… Continue reading May 25 – Letaba to Tamboti

May 16 – Lower Sabie to Satara

I didn’t set my alarm last night, since there wasn’t a rush to get up and I could leave anytime for Satara. The only times I have used the alarm was for extra early get-ups for morning drives or walks. My neighbour had an alarm set for 5:00 am, so that got me up and… Continue reading May 16 – Lower Sabie to Satara
