A chilly good afternoon mites, from an overcast and grey Kruger. The wind has howled the past 24 hours, and finally died down now. No rain tho for all the dark clouds above.
Thanks all for you comments - each one is much appreciated!
Our drive to Bangu this morning was lovely with sightings of general game and a herd of buffs along the way. The rest of the day has been quiet and the afternoon spent snuggled up in the van snoozing
About 15 mins ago the SANParks helicopter flew low overhead in the direction of the Olifants trail area and we can hear it in the distance - not sure what they are up to out at this late hour of the day.
Spook - I hope those lions stay put!
The camp is full but very quiet. Many folk do not go out much but just enjoy the peace of the camp
Yesterday we had a honeymoon couple here - in a bakkie and trailer with all the comments usually written on honeymoon vehicles. Maybe I should suggest to my future DIL they take a honeymoon in KNP too
Sipping Old Brown and going to assist Hawk to light the fire now - at least the wind is just a gentle breeze so we wont light the entire veld.
I can still hear the whilybird (heli) is the distance - most intrigued at what they are up to.
Regarding the kid that was bitten by a hyena here a few weeks ago, I believe he has a big dog at home and put his hand through the fence to pet the hyena. His hand was just scratched by the hyena. Apparently he was very lucky it was a young hyena.
Speaking of hyena, one is whooping in the distance right now.
Tomorrow we pack up here and move to Letaba - part of me is sad to leave here, as we both love Balule; part is very excited to be going to Letaba!
At least there we are back on electricity - out batteries in the van are out after a week of the freezer running off them. We have an inverter on the LC (land cruiser) batteries to charge camera, cells etc.
And so, until next time, greetings to you all from the cool bushveld.
