Well it's time again for another Trip Report
We entered the Park on the 28th of April.
The Park looked so green it was lovely and of course it was good to be back again
Our first Camp this year was Mopani, so after the shopping at Phalaborwa we entered the Main gate and were soon heading towards new adventures....
We had a more than enough time to get to the camp so we decided to drive towards Masorini for a little while just to check what we might spot...
On the eastern entrance/exit of Sable Dam loop we discovered the Rock Dassies again, that were lying there enjoying some rays of sunshine...Larger View
Then we took the S131 to drive towards Mopani
Here we spotted some beautiful Zebras at the waterhole at the end of the gravel road.Larger ViewLarger ViewLarger View
From the lookout at the main road we could see three Ground Hornbills in one of the big trees and a juvenile was flying over to join them....Larger View
