Hey Guys :D

After counting down the days to our Holiday in the Kruger... the time has come and we leave tomorrow morning at 3am! super, super excited!!! :dance: :dance: :dance:

I don't know if you guys remember us but i did a Daily Travel Tale last year, here is the link to it in case you haven't seen it yet:


Our little clan consists of Mom(Mel), Dad(Tim) My Sister Tanna and My boyfriend Jarred, this is the second visit to the Kruger for Jarred but the rest of us go every year as a family holiday, i have been going every year of my life, i even took my first few steps in the Kruger :D We all Absolutely love the Bush and Camping and for me Kruger is the BEST PLACE ON THIS EARTH!!!
We live in Margate KZN, Which is quite a drive away! :wall: but definitely worth it :thumbs_up:

Our Holiday this year is a little bit different as we are not only just staying in the Kruger.(which we normally do) We are staying a few nights out of the Park.

The Itinerary is as follows:

15th of September - Leave Margate and travel 11 hours to White River which is about 70km from Phabeni Gate. We will be staying in White River with my Uncle(My Dads Brother Mark and his Family) from Thursday the 15th to Sunday the 18th. On the Saturday we will be going into Kruger as day vistors.
18th of September - On Sunday Morning we will Leave White River And travel to our Family Doctors(Dr Morkel-which is Albie and Morne Morkels Uncle, They play Cricket for South Africa) Game Farm Near Kapama Cheetah Project and near Thorny bush Game park which joins Kruger which is 60km from Orpen Gate. We are staying there 4 nights and we will be going into Kruger as day visitors each day.
22nd of September - We going to stay one more night at my uncle Mark.
23rd of September to the 2nd of October (9 nights) - At Skukuza - Camping

For each day that we are in Kruger i will post our Daily Sightings and Photo's every night :D i hope we see some interesting things so that we do not bore you guys :pray:

My Camera Equipment is as follows:
Canon 600D
Canon 18-55mm lens
Canon 50-250mm lens
Sigma 150-500mm lens

We have a monopod and a tripod and 3 bean bags to keep the heavy lens steady.

My dad has a
Canon 350D (which I used last year - until i got my own :dance: ) with a Canon 18-55mm lens and a Sigma 70-300mm Lens

I hope that we have a wonderful Holiday and that we make many new Memories :D
I Hope you enjoy reading my Travel tale :thumbs_up:
Just one more sleep until we leave :D

Until then:)

Cody

First day in Kruger – Saturday 17th of September 2011

Hey guys :)
We woke up early and left White River at about 05h15, we got to Phabeni Gate at about 06h00.
After sorting out our Wild Cards we finally got in at 06h20.
We were stressing about the day as it looked overcast, but it actually turned out to be a stunning day.

After entering Phabeni Gate, we headed onto the S3 towards Paul Kruger gate, we saw Bushbuck, Impala, Buffalo, Elephants, Kudu, Rhino, (white and black) Giraffe, Zebra, Nyala here are a few photos from this road.


Image

Image

We saw this Cactus growing in this very tall tree.

Image

Image

Image

This lucky Impala got away. :D

Image

A spotted Dikkop :)

Image

My favourite Flower :thumbs_up:
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

At Paul Kruger Gate we turned Right and headed towards Skukuza for a toilet break and saw the new development there, we then headed to Nkuhlu Picnic spot for Breakfast with the family.

Here is a pic of my Sister Tanna, me and my cousin Scott.
Image

Image

Image

We then headed 3km past Lower Sabie on the H10 and came across a very lazy Leopard sleeping in a tree. :dance: :dance: :dance:

Image

A little further down the Road we saw a Mane Lion million miles away! But by 3pm we had seen our big 5 all on our first day.

Image

At sunset dam we saw This ellie slashing around.

Image

Our last stop was at Lake panic, what an awesome relaxing place that is.

Image

Image

Image

Image

What a lovely day we had, we are so happy that we were so lucky to see such wonderful animals and we cannot wait for our next trip in.

Thank you for reading my Posts :thumbs_up:

19th of September – Monday Kruger.

Today we started our day early, we left our lodge and just outside the gate we saw a blackbacked Jackal.
We then headed to the Kruger, It took us about an hour to get to Orpen Gate.
We got into Kruger at about 06h00am, we then travelled on the Timbavati Road to the Timbavati Picnic spot for a stretch and a toilet break.

One of the first few sightings we saw was a dead Scrub Hare on the side of the road and a mongoose was taking bites out of it and pulling it closer to the bush as each car came closer.

Image

Image

We then went down to a Ratel Pan hide just past the picnic spot, we saw Egyptian Geese with babies, the resident African Spoonbill, A few crocs and a Pied Kingfisher diving for Fish.

Image

Image

We then went back on the tarred road and turned left onto the S40 towards Girivana Dam, where we saw one lonely elephant drinking some water out of the trough. The little dam was all dried up, we also met our first yellow ribbon Click click, HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR TODAY :thumbs_up:

We then headed off to the Nsemani Dam, where we saw plenty lazy Hippos with babies, giraffe, warthogs Zebra and a whole heard of elephant swimming, splashing and having a drink of water, this was awesome to see, but we were all a little bit jealous because it was EXTREMELY hot and we could barely breath in the car. We heard that it was about 40ºc.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We then headed to Satara Camp for Lunch, I had Pie chips and gravy, it was very good!
We bought some ice out of the awesome new ice machine at the take away. And got back into the hot car for the afternoon drive back home.
We headed back to Orpen gate on the main Orpen road where we saw animals such as giraffe, elephant, rhino (10 in one sighting!), impala, Warthog, Zebra, waterbuck, little herd of Buffalo, lots of Kudu and quite a few vultures on nests. We also saw 3 different lots of lions lying in the river bed, with cubs, a maned lion and a collard lioness, but they were all very far away.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Good night Everybody. :thumbs_up:

21st Of September 2011 – Kruger

Today was another early start, we decided to go to the Kruger and enter through Phalaborwa Gate.
It took us about an hour and a half (98km), Got into Kruger as the gates were opening. We saw plenty Wilde Beest, Zebra and two big herds of Buffalo, also a nice amount of Elephants, once again, at the water holes as it was a very hot day.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

a lazy bugger.
Image

Image

We stopped off at Letaba to have breakfast, we had French toast at the Day Centre, a new area for us.

From Letaba to Olifants we just saw general game, when we got to Olifants we saw Hippos down in the river as well as Elephants and water buck.

Image

After stopping at Olifants we saw an Elephant with quite big tusks at a drinking trough.

Image

Image

Also two Rhino lying under a tree, big herds of Zebra and Impala on the open plains, also 4 Ostrich and two Kori Bustards where were nice to see.

Image

Image

On the Bridge, 12km North of Satara towards Olifants, we saw a leopard with a kill in a tree. This was really nice! It ate for a white and then climbed down the tree. It was so nice to see Martie again (another YR) while watching the leopard. Looking forward to meeting up with her in Kruger next week

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

All we needed for our big five was lions but they eluded us.
We went out at Orpen Gate and back to Santawani.
Jarred got the fire going and we had a lovely braai once again :D
We had T-bone steaks, chicken, beetroot and phuto bake. Was delish
For pudding we had strawberries and custard.

Image

Hope you enjoy!

On friday the 23rd we are going to be in the Kruger. Skukuza for 9 nights and then i will do a post every night.
Until then :thumbs_up:

23rd of September - Kruger - Day 1

We packed up at the game lodge, hooked the Caravan up and we were on our way to Orpen gate at about 6 am. Big thanks to Gerhard Morkel and Family for our lovely stay in such a beautiful and peaceful Place! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: It really Was a lovely stay, just wish i could have taken that bed with me :wink: ... A.MA.ZING! :thumbs_up:

We got to Orpen at around 7 am, we travelled on the Tarred road to Satara and then South towards Tshokwane for some lunch, along the way we saw 3 hyeanas on the road, Rhino, Ostrich (Male and female) Zebra, Giraffe, buffalo, warthog, kudu, bush buck, water buck, and Elephants.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Just before the Sweni Road(S126) We saw Two Cheetah's lying on a mound.
we were very happy to see them as this was the first time for Jarred :dance: :dance: :dance:

Image

Image

We then came across a pride of lions.

Image

Image

Not even 600m from the lions We then got to a dam called Mazithi where a lot of activity was going on. huge herd of buffalo, crocs, impala, piggies, Zebra, Hamerkop and a saddle billed stork and few other birds.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

5km after Tshokwane we saw A lion on a Giraffe Kill, it was quite far off the road, we heard that the kill happened yesterday.

Image

Image

Somebody from the Lion kill told us that 3 km along the road is a Leopard on an impala kill. we managed to see the impala but not the leopard. :( you win some you lose some.

Image

Image
We then arrived at Skukuza at 2pm. it was extremely hot setting up our little home, but we tried to get it done as quick as possible.

Image

At about 4 pm we went for a little afternoon drive, an hour out and an hour back.

My mom spotted a Lioness next to the road and i just managed to get one pic as she was on a mission and was out of sight in no time.

Image

And last sighting of the day was some ellies that crossed the road.

Image

We returned to camp and had a lovely Braai under the African Sky! wonderful way to end the day.

Sweet dreams from the best place on earth xxx

25th of September – Skukuza – Day 3

The bush came alive for us today, what an AWESOME day!

We left camp at 6am and travelled to Lake Panic to meet our friend, that we met at Satara last year.

We took a few photos at the Hide, so nice to be there early in the morning.
And to have our first cup of coffee.

Image

Image

Jacques jumped into the car with us for our morning drive, we Headed down towards Kruger Gate and at the junction of the S1, the Doispan Road we saw a herd of Impala barking in distress.
We turned onto the road and loo meters further on we spotted a young female Leopard with an impala by the throat, busy killing it right next to the road.
All very excited.
We watched it dragging the impala to the nearest tree which was 20m away.
We then saw a Hyeana approaching at speed, as the Leopard was taking the kill up the tree, the Hyeana stole it away, this happened so quickly.
We were the only car at this stage. The Hyeana ate the impala straight away, and the leopard looked down from the tree, his meal was hijacked.
It was very sad to see the impala was pregnant! The leopard eventually climed down the tree and disappeared into the bush.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We saw some Rhino and Giraffe at the next water hole, on route also elephant, 3 lots of ground hornbills and buffalo.

Image

Image

Image

On our afternoon drive we went across the Sabie River and then further on the sand river, saw elephants, zebra, a Martial Eagle eating a Guinea fowl, lots of general game and what completed our big five for the day – 2 lioness walked across the road and into the bush.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

We then decided to go back to where our leopard was.
We couldn’t see it at first but further into the bush Jarred spotted a piece of impala in another tree, as we were leaving I spotted the leopard climbing up the tree.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Big five once again.
Very, very lucky!

We having a lovely braai and Tanna made us pancakes with Bananas and Caramel, how delicious.
(will add the pics of that tomorrow)

Another beautiful day under the African sky!
Sweet dreams…

When we got back to camp everyone decided that they don't want to go out for an afternoon drive, so Jarred and I decided we will go by ourselves..

And it was definetly worth it!! We saw a pride of lions right in the middle of the road.
There was impala very close by and the one Lioness was stalking, she charged but missed, Jarred and I were very excited! Here are a few pics.

Hope you all have a lovely evening
Until tomorrow xx
