Is that a Tsessebe I see MM?. Fabulous. Sorry to hear about Trusted Beauty. :cry:

Grantmissy you are correct in saying that the Park brings peace and tranquility. It is my ‘happy’ place. A place where I feel safe. May it always remain so.

A favourite time of day.

I may not be there right now, but I can't wait for the bookings to open in January because I will be there end December 2014.

So true MM.

I would not mind being in Kruger right now, anywhere is fine, Kruger means many things to me and one of them is peace and tranquility - and that is good.


Grantmissy, peace and tranquility :gflower: :gflower:

Yes, it is a Tsessebe, Mizzbee. I love Lower Sabie in the early morning. I love anywhere in the early morning.

I might have some good news about Trusted Beauty. The mechanic seems to be able to work a couple of miracles and she may well be around for another year. :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Tent Dweller, I do love the impies in Pretorius Kop. They give the camp such character.

Another surprise sighting close to Pretorius Kop. An animal strolled in front of me while I was on my way to Skuks.... I was shaking so much when I realised what it was. I only managed a couple of brief and blurred pictures.

My only ever Caracal in Kruger.

It was gone so quickly... but my heart did not stop racing for a long, long time... and my smile went right around my face.

MM, :clap: :clap: :clap: I can understand why you were shaking, we've been going to Kruger for 35 years and I've yet to see a Caracal, it's right on top of my wish list to see:pray: :pray:

This sunny afternoon I would like to sit on a bench in the Shimuwini Bushveld Camp overlooking the Letaba River. I will also in the meantime start getting the firewood ready for the braai tonight. Perhaps even wipe clean a few glasses for ice cold drinks around the fire while we braai. Oh … yes let me take a stroll to the Reception office to buy some ice before I return to my bench overlooking the river. I :hmz: December is a good and care free month to relax in the Kruger :hmz: maybe next year.

I still have a lot more exploring to do in northern Kruger. This is for me the most beautiful river drive. It gives the greatest sense of solitude.
