Goodness that was an early start to the day. Isn't it just great hearing and smelling the bush - I think every sighting is a bonus - never mind the cats - they'll show themselves.
I hope the sunset drive produces some good sightings.
Impyim our wake up time did not change for the rest of the holiday. We kept thinking "tomorrow morning we will sleep in" but the idea of a early morning drive woke us up, most times, before the alarm even went off.
It seems that you and SO is the same as us when we are in the bush
. Just can't wait to get through the gate and admire everything we see
Just love those little Woodlands Kingfisher
The little blue wildebeest are just so cute
Wonderful steenbuck and klipspringer sightings
Not looking out of place behind a set of braai tongs SC
Thanks for sharing
Thanks Barry. Those early morning drives are great. I think if the gate opened earlier than 4:30, we would have been out the gates even earlier
Thanks for following my TR Hilda. Your comments are much appreciated.
SurfCindy, now sitting at the airport after a drive from Kruger doing a bit of catching up on Forum news. We ended our trip at the same place that you started - Pretoriuskop.
Lovely pics and enjoyable sightings you have had so far
. I also enjoyed the TR and looking forward to see if SO managed to get the black one
. We spotted in total 26, but only white ones...
- but one just could not get enough of them.
Thanks for sharing your TR - lovely start.
Kaapsedraai, I hope you had a great rest of the trip. It was lovely meeting you and look forward to reading your TR. I must say we were spoilt with rhino sightings this trip.
Fantastic klippie sighting and picture
Love the rocky area in that part of the park
Thanks Pumbaa, the scenery around Pretoriuskop alone makes a stay at the camp worthwhile. It never ceases to amaze me how diverse the vegetation is in Kruger.
Super sightings all round.
See the "Woody family member" kept you awake with their call.
Baby wildebeest are so sweet.
Beautiful little Steenbokkie...those ears forward and oh so alert.
Thanks Trrp -Trrrrrrr, I just love the woodlands, so didn't mind hearing their call. They are one of my favourite birds
Great sightings. It is wonderful to see the park all green and fresh looking.
The park was very green, I believe there was quite a bit of rain before our arrival and quite a lot since our departure.

You look pretty competent with the braai, Surfcindy
I love those rock formations.
They bring in such an awareness of the ancient legacy of humankind. Great
Now, where can those cats be hiding.
The good didn't taste too bad either
Think my SO is quite keen to carry on with this idea of me being the official holiday braaier. Not sure where the cats were hiding but we were sure going to look for them.
That is a good question, we'll just have to wait for a page turn to see
