It really is somthing to see the Timbavati river full of water. The park is really green but some places still need a lot of water.Day 2
We started of at 4:30 am. It was still very dark to see but we drove really slow just in case we might spot something in the dark. We stoped at bobejaanskrans to see how it look from up there and it was beautiful.
We turned on the tar road again a came across a troop of baboon enjoying the heat off the tar road. They lay all over the road a we enjoued them very much.
We drove towards Satara. The dam on our left hand side was full of water. We saw so many raptors in the trees and always in pairs. I stopped counting at 50.
We turned towards Thokwane. On our way there we only spotted some impies. But to see the veld soon green was something else. Kumano waterhole only had a small puddle of water in it. The Mazitsi dam just before Thokwane very dry and only had a puddle of mud left. My hart broke in two. The residents hippo was gone as well as the was no water for him. The Siloweni dam after Thokwane was full of water.
We stoped at Thokwane and made some brunch. It was really hot so we wetted our t-shirt and small towel to put around ou necks. We took the gravel road on your left as you leave thokwane. Every were we looked we saw small puddles of water so it seems the veld does have some water.
We saw some impies on the road and some ellies. As we turned on the tar road we only saw sume buffs in the mud just before the sweni road. We didn't mind not seeing anything. We enjouyed seeing everthing green as we only visit the park mostly in the winter.
