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 27 – Tamboti

No fog this morning, but some clouds which just might make a nice sunrise. I wasn’t even off the camp road when I met an Elephant willing to pose for me. Without the fog from yesterday, it was even light enough to see.   A couple of Wildebeests were next and then the rest of… Continue reading May 27 – 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 24 – Letaba

I was up bright and early this morning and ready for my drive to Mopani to see if they still have the internet available for use (for a fee). Had a Helmeted Guineafowl roadblock soon after leaving the gate. It was still too dark to get their pictures though. This is the first time there… Continue reading May 24 – Letaba

May 14 – Lower Sabie

First thing this morning I drove to Sunset Dam, where the sightings were African Spoonbill, Hippos, the moon, a pair of Pied Kingfishers, who landed on the bush right beside my car, an Egyptian Goose family, the start of the sunrise,and an African Fish Eagle, just as I was leaving.  It is still not light… Continue reading May 14 – Lower Sabie

May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie

Last night I saw my first Bushbucks as they came into camp. It was already getting dark and they must have made it in just before the gate closed.  I only got a picture of 1 of them as they settled down to sleep.   This morning it was time to pack up and move… Continue reading May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie
