Day 10

I felt very sad today. We have to leave our beloved kruger national park. We sat outside at 6:00 with a cup of coffee and some ouma rusks and our mood was cloudy. :cry:
That was until the monkeys arrived and entertained us for a while. They tried all kinds of tactics to steel our food. The boys were the best guards ever, and protected the ouma rusks with their lives. You could see the monkey’s brains working overtime.Image

It was not until one of them threatened Eric, that we decided to go inside and start packing. :naughty:

We left camp with the plan to exit at Malelane gate, but when we arrived at the gate, Philip and I looked at each other and without a word he turned the car around, and headed towards skukuza.

Phabeni gate, here we come. Image
Not a bad choice. We saw lots of ellies, rhino’s, and giraffes on this road

Just view kilometres before Skukuza, we saw these cute little guys. We sat there for more than an hour, watching them eat and play.

This one had a bit of a hangover

They found some sort of skin (maybe buffalo skin?)

Luckily this little guy left my Yellow ribbon alone

This is one of my favourite videos. I wonder why this little hyena is licking in his mom’s mouth. And you can hear Roan clicking away with his camera….


We stopped at Lake panic to stretched our legs. It was crowded but very quiet. There were the most beautiful birds I enjoyed the atmosphere so much, I wanted to stay there forever. Here are a few pics from the hide.

Philip had to drag me away from there. I didn’t want to leave. Image

We took the Phabeni road, and we talked about our next trip to kruger, just to keep our spirits high. Roan said he definitely want to stay in B&D again, I said Letaba is a must for at least 3 nights, Philip wanted to stay in Satara for a change and Eric said he didn’t mind, as long as there is a swimming pool :tongue:

So we booked our trip for next year: 3 nights Berg en Dal, 2 nights Satara, 3 nights Letaba and 2 nights Shingwetzi. :dance:

We left kruger with a bit of sadness, but all excited about our next trip.
