Hey guys :)
As you know I added some photos of our 2009 holiday, and then I did a daily TR in August 2010 and I was looking at our 2008 photos and decided that I should share them with you!
If you don't know about us yet - we (My mom, Dad, my sister Tanna and I) come to the Kruger every year, sometimes twice a year, I have been every year of my life (20 years).

We were in Kruger for 13 nights. (29 June - 12 July 2008)
5 nights at Skukuza
5 nights at Satara
and then 3 nights at Lower Sabie.

As I can't really remember what we saw - what day, Ill just add a whole lot of photos and a few stories.

It was an awesome Holiday and I hope you guys enjoy :)

This specific year, a friend of my sister and I - Amber came with us on holiday. so Tanna, Amber and I went on a night drive, here are a few pics from the drive.

The next morning on the tarred road to Olifants from Satara, about 5 Km past the Timbavati picnic spot turnoff, we saw lions on a buffalo kill.
we counted up to 15 Lions and cubs. they were right next to the road, we were so close we heard them crunching on the bones... :D
