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

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

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 11 – Crocodile Bridge

It is so peaceful here, but my tent is right beside the gas station where the drives… Continue reading May 11 – Crocodile Bridge

A Whole Lotta Minuses

That’s what I see in the future here – a bunch of minus temperatures.  The weather network is trying to fool us by saying that in 5 days, we will get a + temperature, but I’m not buying that.  It is winter.  Right now it is -8C with a wind chill that feels like -15C… Continue reading A Whole Lotta Minuses

Africam

You may have noticed that I list the sightings at  Africam each day.  🙂  Now that the sightings around my home have pretty much disappeared, I will be posting some of the pictures from there as well as from the polar bear cam in Churchill. This morning the temperature here is -8C with a windchill… Continue reading Africam

Chester and the Kestrel

Not that  Chester and the Kestrel ever got together, but I have something to tell you about Chester and I saw the bird that may be a Kestrel again. Chester woke me up this morning at 5:45 when he had a seizure.  It only lasted a minute or 2, but it has been several years… Continue reading Chester and the Kestrel
