Last week Wednesday we go Kruger early at Crocodile Bridge. The water was steel running over the bridge. Next to bridge we saw hippo to say hallo. We take some photo.

We start to in Kruger by driving S25. We see following animals and birds on this road.

We see blue wildebeest and when we look nice we see white rhino at back :shock:
Lots of vultures together
Girafas – giraffe
Slender mongoose
Baby Bateleur
Black stork
Baboon
Hamerkop
