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 23 – Letaba

I took the morning drive this morning and as usual lately, there were only 4 of us on it. Too bad they don’t have smaller vehicles available for this drive when there are so few taking it. We saw Impalas (of course) and Wildebeests before it was light enough to take pictures, so our first… Continue reading May 23 – Letaba

May 22 – Olifants to Letaba

I made myself the usual oatmeal and rusk breakfast (with cranberries). After eating, I made a flask of coffee and wandered down to the overlook to wait for the sunrise. It was a usual sunrise. Since I have been a bit north, there are absolutely no clouds in the sky at all, so the sunrise… Continue reading May 22 – Olifants to Letaba

May 18 – Satara

I started off this foggy morning with a Helmeted Guinea Fowl road block. Guess they heard that I mentioned that I hadn’t been seeing them around Satara. The sun soon rose with a beautiful sun rise and cleared up the fog for a nice drive. Today, I had decided to drive south a bit to… Continue reading May 18 – Satara

May 17 – Satara

I woke up around 5 am as usual this morning and got myself something to eat & drink before heading for the gate. I didn’t want to be at the beginning of the lineup, since everyone will pass me anyway – so I waited until the gate was open before leaving. There was still a… Continue reading May 17 – Satara

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
