I was so lucky to be in Kruger this past weekend AGAIN. We entered on Friday and came back on Sunday. We camped at Tsendze. It is a very special camp with a very unique atmosphere.
We travelled the H14 four times this weekend! We used it on Friday, and on Saturday, SO had to be in Phalaborwa for a sports event. That meant we went to Phalaborwa and back on the H14, and on Sunday, we left through the same route. We got to know the road!
The gate at Phalaborwa is being revamped, and we will never see the old one again:
Our list of animals looks like this:
Impies, Warthogs, Buffs, Ellies, Waterbuck, Kudu, Zebra, Honey Badger and Steenbuck. Apart from the Badger, it doesn’t seem like much, but this Daggaboy at the Ngwenyeni waterhole was a very nice sighting. And the zebra added to the pleasure.
I realised how difficult it is to do photography on an overcast day. The light from the sky and the reflection from the water made it almost impossible (for me) to get a decent photo. All the pics are edited and/or cropped.
We had some feathered visitors at the waterhole as well. This White Backed Vulture was apparently drying it’s feathers in the sun.
And this Little Bee-eater took a bath in the pool, and later joined it’s friends on a branch.
This visit was our visit of the Kingfisher. I spend a long time at a waterhole with no name, trying to take a decent pic of the kingfisher catching fish. Again, the overcast conditions, me and my aim and shoot camera didn’t produce the goods. I can show you these (cropped) pics though:
And sometimes it took a break.
And then this Malachite came along.
Again, it was a great weekend. Kruger just never disappoints!!
No, it is KTP in June/July!!
