But lets get on with it........
Well, as I said, day one, we just did not get to Kruger. We awaited some Mites from Nelspruit for the weekend (Since RP chickened out)
. In the afternoon we received the bad news, broken car at Graskop.
Working out, a few things, maybe go there, do a pick-up, all thoughts of the rescue came to an end after another call, new vehicle on the way, will be in Phalaborwa early Saturday
Since the mites were some of the SO’s Cricket team mates, Scipio was contemplating staying at home, but big was my surprise on the Saturday morning when they arrived....
The amount of respect for said visitors rose to extraordinary levels when they entered our humble adobe with a cold one in hand.
Last nights Potjie was immediately heated for the esteemed guests, Scipio was ready for the park, even with 5 females.
It was a lazy day with a lot of chat, discussing certain peoples teaching attributes,
the park, and really enjoying the company of like-minded people. Sightings were good.
First the ellie having a mud bath.
Next a nice Kudu herd with a good looking bull in the midst of all the females, much like Scipio on the day.
Then we found this little family,
With this Monitor on the opposite side.
Afternoon after visiting the Elephant Museum in Letaba was filled with good sightings of elephants,
At this time, we had to get back to the gate, a fantastic day indeed, but this buffalo herd decided we will be late,
I was not going to speed and a few minutes late, well, you play the game, and you gotta pay the price. Just before we got to the gate in darkness, our first lions, just a ghostly blur.
But the day was good, and there was still a month to go.
