Thanks John and Kate. There were definitely some highs and lows. One the biggest highs for us was the wild dogs, this was our first sighting of them in 20 years
- The orpen to Satara was magic.
Another was a stranger offering to lend me his expensive lens to get better photographs of the Cheetahs (this doesn't happen anymore). If you are reading this Thank you very much!!
Lows, our second night wasn't very pleasant as there was a party next door at a 2 man tent with 7 people shouting when talking to each other, the honorary ranger even had to go move the one's car cause he was too drunk and parked at wrong tent. We go to Tamboti because it's so primitive and private. And then we woke up with bites all over us from bed lice, wasn't very impressed...
Lastly the bakkie battery gave us problems as it was overcharging. Had to buy a new one at Skukuza and then again wait 6 hours in Nelspruit for them to fit another new battery and fix the problem (Motolek was very helpful
But with all of this we were still in the Kruger so did not affect us that much.
