During my 7 days in the Park, I was very glad that I did not see any road kill, which somehow I always see. Also no accidents, I recall seeing that burnt out wreck of of that car of that lady that worked at the Finnish Embassy on one trip. Well, I guess it was too good to be true that I would avoid seeing something, and sure enough there was this, close to the Spider sighting. Maybe they got a SKRIK too. Just don't understand how this kind of thing can happen. It was not close to one of the camps, as an excuse to get there on time. So probably just plain speeding and losing control of the vehicle. Not what I like to see when I was so happy to be in the park again.
. Some Sanparks staff came to inspect the vehicle, and then left, presumably to come back with the right equipment to retrieve the vehicle.

A Yellow Billed KIte was flying overhead, but I struggled to get a decent pic, directly into the sunlight. This through the car window.
An hour or so before I need to make the return trip, and I figured I will have a quick stop at Skukuza, and see if I can see my friends, the Green Tree Pigeons. Sure enough they are there, though I struggled to get some decent shots- they were busy feeding, scuttling from branch to branch.
