Get your seat belt buckled sonny the ride has just begun
I would like to believe that I'm the leppie spotter of the Kruger but if you brag about it they hear you and hide with the next visit @WendyA:
I'm sorry-there is a lot of leppies on the H11 and H4-1
Next time I will be careful when choosing a dirt road@Rookie:
Aren't we always like that. I was really blessed with good sightings that week but we almost hope for a little bit more, don't we?@Meerkitty:
Yes that was really a highlight of my trip-still bragging about that with my friends. Thanks for my new label @Ollie:
It was luck, I bathed in it before I drove to the Kruger @Pumbaa:
The kitties are mos very active in the mornings that is why you will almost always see me first at the gate waiting to spot them.@John:
Never did think I would see another one that day. Would like to say that the wilderness in me attracted the kitty? @BluTuna:
Thanks for the ID @Vinkie:
I do see a lot of leppies with every single trip. I don't know why
I actually think a lot of forumites should go on a trip to the Kruger, just imagine the stories that would be told around campfires and if everyone bring their best 'spotness' what we all would see? @Radman:
Exactly I'm a fish that's why the leppies are attracted to me Day 2
I didn't tell you but I forgot to pack a YR - tssk tssk
I got one later one but that is another tale. I woke up that following morning at 3:30, my body was so sore, driving for 14 hours would do it to a person. Had a quick shower and packed my things. Like Cheetah said: "Early bird catches the kitty?" or whatever...
I went out the gate and that is the thing that attracts me to Berg en Dal: the 'mountains' makes the sunrise breathtaking...
Sorry I was so mesmerized my photo was kinda blurry!
It was very early and I didn't make coffee it was just killing me. I NEEDED
As I was driving by my all lonesome self on the H3.
(You know it's really nice going to the Kruger alone but it can get a bit quiet in a car. As a strict rule no radio in the car in the Kruger but to sit and not talk to anyone for 7-12 hours...How can a women cope?
I was pondering what would I like to see today?
The BIG 5 ofcourse
Maybe a cheetah-haven't seen one of those... and well I would like to see any cat, dog or thing walking on four legs, and what happens. I came upon these fellas in the road in front of me. The Kruger is rather lenient with me-I couldn't SEE ANYTHING because my contacts got all fogged up
Mother nature brought all her creatures to come and greet me!
About 10km past that I saw bodies lying on the road....a tail wags (
What? Doggies just for me?
) As I drove closer I was a bit let down BUT I do love my hyenas! And most of them were feeding their-not so small-babies. I had these type of doggies(I do know that a hyena is more related to mongoose but they resemble doggies for me) for 20 minutes for myself...THEY ARE ADORABLE
I'm still on the H3 too afraid to drive any dirt roads-my car still not happy with me for yesterday. And next to the road an ellie greets my while eating breakfast. They do like their greens.
Just before Afsaal this zebra had a bit on an itch that he had to take care of. I have a video clip which I will post at the end of the TR?
I didn't spot these amazing creatures but I got to take nice pics of the baby rhiny...
Say it with me: A-DO-RA-BLE! Apparently everything are adorable
And before I got to the H1-1 I saw this beautiful raptor, the Brown Eagle I presumeTo be continued...
