As you all know by now we had a very red Nissan Micra .
That on ifself was a sighting. I sometimes believe there were
more people interested in the car that in the animals
Two YR sightings. Jock's parents and Oumie.
S3 Ellies and Kudu
H1-1 Young bull ellie breaking the branches 5 mtrs from the road and lots of Kudu
In early light family of Waterbuck with the very big croc taking
a tan next to them
12-15 Waterbuck frolicing in the water. Our red was parked next to where they had their fun. Green-backed heron and two fisheagles welcoming me with their very african sound
H4-1 near LS we were in traffic jam of 20 min. caused by Dagga Boys who wanted to cross the road. Then one decided to inspect the red car (new to him i recon
He passed me and if i wanted i could touch him.
LS and surroundings
The river full of croc and hippo.
Near the tent white-fronted bee-eater, enjoying his meal within camerareach.
During our morning walk the angry Ellie and the guides took uswithin 25 mtr of a white rhino family. Was very exciting. 3 Hyaena.
On the S28 was a leopard kill and we were tipped by the guides. Went there late afternoon and found the dead impala in
the tree but no leopard. But a Wahlberg Eagle was plucking at the meat
Other roads produced the usual. We hardly ever saw giraffe
We did this in the early morning.
One advantage is that it isnt swarming with cars.
Hippo in the water and real close. Croc also glided by
A pied kingfisher landed on a dead branch, within camerareach and took 5 min to kill the just caught fish
One of ours fav. sightings in Kruger
First groups of Wildebeest and zebras near Mlondozi Dam and a group of 300-400 dagga boys with oxpeckers and cattle egret enjoying a free ride.
Near Nkumbe Klipspringers and a pair white rhinos.
After Tshokwane we started to see more and more giraffe.
Part two follows later.
It is a bit to hot to sweat over the computer.
Time for a beer
