It is still nice and beautiful in KNP. Though a bit overcast, there is no wind… just ideal.
Ingwe7, as I said we are at Malelane Camp till 25.09, hope to see you.
Naomi, Malelane Camp is great. It has only 5 chalets and 15 camp positions, good and clean ablutions, two kitchens and even an oven. It does not have shops and restaurant, so it is also very quiet. Well, you hear the train occasionally and singing from the mosque on windy days. If you are early to leave the camp you will be the first on H3. We are here because of its good 3G. Our other options would be Skukuza (too busy) and Crocodile Bridge (very small camping ground and always busy). Here are some pictures. We’ve posted more pictures somewhere at the beginning of our blog.
These Dead trees are Marulas
Carocat, yes Trumpeters come to Malelane camp when marulas are fruiting.
Babu, there are lots of kudus around, or I just see them as there are no leaves on bushes yet. Some years ago in Hwange I have witnessed a pack of wild dogs took a fully grown kudu. Well, not nice but everybody has to eat and feed family.
Others, thank you for the comments… yes babies are always cute. I could spend hours watching elephant babies (except for the big Mammas…).
I did a short drive yesterday evening and Kitty showed on the Bergendal towards Matjulu Dam road. It was against the sun and the pictures are not great. But, you can still clearly see him.
And Kitty was gone.
And then 11 Rhinos. I did not even managed to put them all in the picture.
This morning hyenas ware waiting for me! I was very early and one of the first on the road. I drove to Afsaal and on the way back they were gone. Den is about a kilometer before the Mlambane turn off coming from Malelane gate.
And that will be it for today. Camp was quiet this morning but the weekend onslaught has already started.
