So sadly we are back from 9 nights in Kruger. Our accommodation was as follows:
5th October – Tamboti Rest Camp
6th October – Tamboti Rest Camp
7th October – Tamboti Rest Camp
8th October – Satara Rest Camp
9th October – Satara Rest Camp
10th October – Lower Sabie Rest Camp
11th October – Lower Sabie Rest Camp
12th October – Lower Sabie Rest Camp
13th October – Lower Sabie Rest Camp
The trip started with a bit slow (very slowly for some of our luggage which took 3 days to arrive). We were first timers to Tamboti and requested tent 40 after reading all the good reviews and were not disappointed.
On our first night we lighted the braai and quickly found we had company…..
The whole clan decided to have a nap next to our braai, clearly hoping for some freebies before heading out in to the bush. We got woken up on by their return trip in the early hours. The local pair of honey badgers visited us every night. I did try to take a photo one night but in my half-awake state I forgot to take off the lens cap. We found various other interesting bits around camp...
The game in the surrounding area was pretty quiet this time and the H7 did not produce and of the great cat sightings we experience on our previous trip but plenty of elephants in the area this time around.
We did find a car that was feeling lucky……
We spent a lot of time at Nsemani Dam and had fun photographing the local fish eagle
Too bee continued…………..
