Our trip started on the 21 March when we left home around 5 am and arrived at Crocodile Bridge about 4 hours later. We immediately headed for Lower Sabie where we camped until the Sunday.
The camping area was not that full and after driving 3 times around we made our final decision on No 24. SO still wanted to move closer to a very shaded site, but we wasted too much time deciding and another couple started pitching their tent on the first spot we eyed.
After finally settling in we had 4 days left to explore the Lower Sabie area.
It was not our first time to this camp, but we normally camp at Berg en Dal and wanted a bit change to explore other areas we not that familiar to. LO enjoys a swim in the afternoon therefore we try to book at camps with swimming pools. Before the afternoon drive we first headed for the pool and around 3 pm on a drive towards Mlondozi Dam and back along Mlondozi road.
We had no luck on the first day spotting any felines, but had a few elephant encounters, baboon troops and the feathered one. The bushes were very dense and it was even difficult to see zebras moving in the long grass.
Elephants will always welcome you along the H4-2 towards Lower Sabie: Here is a mummy hiding the little one from us.
Well in Kruger you will defintely have some quality family time and learn from others:
And if you hungry a morsal is always closeby. Just need to toss and turn and then you can swallow it . A European roller knows how to master that trick.
The feathered ones will never disappoint you, specially the colourful ones like this Southern Carmine bee-eater.
A trip to Kruger is not completed without spotting the raptors. A juvenile bateleur was watching us from a tree top out side Lower Sabie.
