Your first photo upon entering Kruger

Unread postby stephan groen » Thu Jul 14, 2011 9:56 am

Let's see a collection of our very first photos upon arriving in Kruger. Whether it is the Impala lilies in flower at Malelane gate or the "great excitement" at spotting your first (of MANY) impala.

(Mine is usually me smiling like a twit in front of a gate while my girlfriend takes the picture)

Have fun.

This is on a much loved road. I often stop here as my first stop.

Yup :thumbs_up: spot on. I stop there many times, just to enjoy the beautiful vista. It is also sometimes my last stop before I leave when I have that sinking feeling.

Our first photo upon entering Kruger is usually of the graceful Impalas. We also took a photo of a leopard a short distance after entering Malelane Gate one early morning :cam:

My first photo is the first animals we see.
Usually the first klomp of Impalas
