South Africa Trip – Falling into Place

Next on the list is my trip to Kruger National Park in South Africa next year.  This trip has to be planned months in advance and then the wait begins.  I am happy to say that it is completely planned and it is paid for – except for the car rental (but it is reserved)… Continue reading South Africa Trip – Falling into Place

It Has Been 4 Years

It has been 4 years this August since my trip to Kruger National Park and Sabi Sands in South Africa and it is time to go again. We can partially blame my addiction to Africam for my desire to be in South Africa – but once you’ve been there, you just have to go back. … Continue reading It Has Been 4 Years

Sleepy Chester

For some reason I dug out my Sony camera the other day and started snapping pictures of Chester.  I tried to sell this camera at one time because it simply did not have the zoom that I wanted for my trip to South Africa, but no one wanted to pay anything close to its value,… Continue reading Sleepy Chester

August 27 – Tamboti to Nkorho

It was time to pack up and leave Kruger National Park today.  I left the gate at Tambotti shortly after 6:00 am and headed to Satara.  I couldn’t show up at Nkorho too early. At Satara I filled the car with gas.  The sightings in Kruger today were Steenbok, Baboons, Elephant, Blacksmith Lapwing, Warthogs, Giraffe,… Continue reading August 27 – Tamboti to Nkorho

Preparation and Planning

Planning and preparation for my trip to Africa is pretty much done. Planning started a year ago, when I contacted some amazingl friends who have experience traveling to Africa.  They gave me wonderful advice on the different camps in Kruger to consider.  They told me when I had too much distance to comfortably travel in… Continue reading Preparation and Planning
