@Crested Val You make me blush with so many complements thank you!
I will try and make this report interesting too!
@barryels Thanks the trip was just one of those that you didn’t want to end, not because we saw spectacular things but because we just enjoyed the Park so much.
Back to the report because the bus must keep moving!
Of course all bets are on to see what animal is spotted first
but before that a moment of silence as we roll down the window and breathe in the Kruger air!
Finally we are here and we are ready.
First up? You guessed it IMPALA,
followed shortly by one of the ugliest animals in the park!
Shame when looks were handed out these guys just didn’t even make it to the queue!
BUSTED! A Cori that is. Great to see this guy so soon after entering the Park.
Not much further along the road is a family favorite and the first thing the girls think of is Lion King where Pumbaa: [through a mouthful of grub and worms; says to Simba] “You'll learn to love 'em!”
Maybe you enjoy Rhino poop, Pumbaa but I think I will stick to a steak on the braai!
We have a long drive ahead of us as we head towards Tamboti! We head up on the H4-2 and as we near Lower Sabie we see our first predator. He is far away but a Lion is a Lion!! Personally I think it is Simba roaring his disapproval to Pumbaa at his choice of grub!
Will this prince become a king of the kudus? He looked like a fine specimen to me!
Just looking at his head makes me wonder how itchy those horns must be as they start to grow.
A look back at Lower Sabie from the bridge. It felt good to know we would be coming back here later in the trip.
Some lazy hippy hippos were basking in the sun.
So adorable. Hard to think they are such dangerous animals when they sleep with a smile on their faces!
As we are driving along the H10 we are very disturbed by a dirty nappy lying in the road!
Can you believe that? Terrible.
But back to happy thoughts! Like this vulture let’s put that thought behind us!
And look ahead to a wonderful trip. Like little Klippie over here on the rock staring into the future.
