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 19 – Satara to Olifants

As I left this morning, the first critters were the Impalas that seem to live at the gate at Satara. Soon after were the Wildebeests that are usually in their places too. The first pictures were of a Vulture Tree.  Next were some Zebras who turned their backs on me, but I took a picture… Continue reading May 19 – Satara to Olifants

May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie

Last night I saw my first Bushbucks as they came into camp.

May 11 – Crocodile Bridge

Other than a couple of annoying mosquitoes (that no longer exist), I had a wonderful sleep last night, only waking up as the morning drive noisily started off and then I went back to sleep for another hour. It is so peaceful here, but my tent is right beside the gas station where the drives… Continue reading May 11 – Crocodile Bridge

May 9 – Pretoriuskop

Our morning drive got out a bit late this morning due to the fact that several of the people going were not prepared – either did not complete the forms or did not have their forms and then many were unable to stop talking long enough for our Ranger, Pet to explain the rules. We… Continue reading May 9 – Pretoriuskop
