Day 42

We visited Crocodile Bridge in 2008 and got a surprise when we returned from a drive one morning. This little white frog was on top of our window. I don’t like frogs so much so Philip had to be the one removing him. I have no idea what kind of frog this is. Maybe someone can help me identify it?

Day 41

Some warthog pics for you guys today. Enjoy

Image
The first one was taken in Crocodile bridge. These guys are so tame.


Image
This family we saw in February. Those little ones are so cute.


Image
These 2 guys were very funny. We were playing cricket at skukuza and they were roaming around on the fields. But after a while they didn’t like us being there so they started chasing the angels team. Luckily they decided that chasing angel’s was not there best option and they retreated.

Day 40

Here is some pictures of Roan again today.


Cereal breakfast time when he was younger
Image


This is how Roan likes to start his mornings now. With coffee and ouma rusks. What a way to start a day in Tamboti.
Image


Doing the dishes after breakfast is also something he wouldn’t mind doing.

Day 39

Roan was very impressed with this sighting. We saw this Python a year back. It was almost dark, so the pics are not great, but at least we have some.

Day 38

One thing of Africa that amazes me the most is the beauty of the sunsets and stars at night.


Image
This picture is one of the hundreds of sunset pictures we have. The colors are amazing



Image
This picture was taken in 2011 at Lower Sabie. The moon was so bright you could see almost anything in the river that moved. Just beautiful.

Day34

Roan and I visited the Rabelais hut once. We had a nice swim and late afternoon decided to head over there for a quick look. We parked our car and were the only ones there. I left the door of our car open, just in case…

Image


We entered and looked around. Suddenly we heard a loud roaring noise. I took this photo just the second we heard that noises. Look at Roan’s face…lol

Image


We ran outside and were in our car in no time. We looked around to see if it was a lion or leopard, but couldn’t see anything. Just a few impala rams. Later that night we went on a night drive and the guide told us the noise we heard was probably that of a rutting impala ram. Pff what a relieve

Day 33

We like to go on night drives. This year we’ve already booked 2 drives. One at Tamboti and one at Pretoriuskop. Can’t wait.


Image
This first picture was taken in Lower Sabie. We had the privilege to drive with Martie again. Roan sat in front next to her when we came across this lions.


Image
This was just outside the lower sabie gate. These lions walked past the gate towards the sunset dam


Image
On this drive we came across these rhino’s. Later that night we passed them again, and they charged the truck. It was really scary to experience.



Image
This was taken on the Pretoriuskop drive. We saw these lions at the Shitlhave dam. The whole pride was there for days.


Image
Just before we returned to camp, we came across this leopard.

Here is some video clips

Santie explaining rhino behavior.

Day 32

In 2009 we stayed in Orpen. We were on holiday in October and had to take the kids a week out of school. Eric got homework so in the afternoons we were doing homework in a place with a great view.


Image


Later that night we lit the bbq. Eric walked past the grid and without thinking, he touched it. He burned blasters on 4 of his fingers. We didn’t have anything for burns with us, but as Eric screamed so loudly, one of the neighbors came running towards us with a first aid kid and in it was some gel for burns. She was our angel. It immediately eased the pain and he insisted on having a bandage on his hand. And from that day forward, we have our own first aid kid with everything in it.

Day 31

These pictures were taken in February 2012. My friend and I were driving on the S28 early one morning. We suddenly saw a big female in the middle of the road. She walked off and returned with other females and lots of little cubs. We couldn’t believe our luck. It was such a pity that we were the only ones seeing this.

Day 29


My friend and I stayed in one of the lower sabie riverside tents in February. This was a first for me and I loved it. It was one of the most memorable experiences, when we sat down one evening, the fire was just lid and as we enjoyed our drinks, a BIG herd of elephants crossed right in front of our tent. It was AMAZING. I quickly went to fetch our neighbors who were in a Non river facing tent.
