Hey guys.... sorry I took so long to reply (back at school
Thank you all so much for the kind comments!
I really tried hard to get nice
and so far it looks like it has paid off!!!!! Rino -
Yes there sure is!!! Puppy -
I really hope that when you next go to Kruger your camera impresses you just as much as it impressed me!!! Pumbaa -
You might be doing a lot of comparing because my mom and I have different ways of writing our TR's!! Elsa and Anne-marie -
Hahaha.... thanks so much to both of you! Noel -

It was also nice to meet you and as for the afternoon drive..... my rule is that you never, ever, ever skip any type of drive in Kruger!! DinkyBird -
I wonder what planet he comes from??!! Flying Cheetah -
We saw so many Eagle-owls that eventually we hardly even stopped for them!!
Well here goes Day 2...... We left at 5:25 am and started making our way up to Punda Maria. I had never been that far up before so I was looking forward to seeing the different vegetation and animals up there!!
The first animal I photographed was this monkey having lots of fun in the trees!!
We then saw this beautiful male nyala!
We then saw a very colourful White-fronted Bee eater
My favourite species of birds.... a Brown-hooded Kingfisher
And then something new for us...... a Sharpe's Grysbok!!!! None of us had ever seen a Grysbok before - another newbie!!
We decided to visit Klopperfontein Dam and just out of luck as we were driving off my mom spotted an eland..... another newbie!!!
Unfortunately I didnt get a
because he was very far away and was moving a ot so wasn't so easy to photograph!!
We then stopped at Pafuri for a late breakfast which was yummy and we also met Frank!!
After our delicious breakfast we headed towards Crook's Corner where we saw these very wise looking waterbuck!!
We then came across Fever Tree Forest, which I had been waiting for all morning! There was just green (well sort of green
) all around us.... it was beautiful!!
