Thank you Meandering Mouse, the giraffe and baobab is one of those special moments for me.
Early morning drive up to Mopani all
Stunning.... All making me more homesick than ever.
...Mopani entrance sigh....wish I was there.
Yes, Trrp-trrrrrrrr, Mopani is just a special place - especially away from the overcrowdedness experienced in the south in Dec and such a beautiful camp.
Stunning TR and Pics, Kaapsedraai for sharing Love the little Red-billed Oxpeckers
Philip1, thank you for comments and I appreciate it.
Wow Kaapsedraai! I've just caught up from page 7, and boy oh boy, did you have some beautiful sightings with awesome pictures too!
hilda, firstly we missed you and SO and secondly, welcome back - look forward to your TR
Thank you for all your comments.
I cannot comment on all of them now, I have a lot of catching up to do. Just know that I still enjoy each and every episode and picture in your trip report!

another great couple of episodes....and I agree with you, how can you stay in camp when you have waited a year to be exactly where you are so close too.....the bush and its inhabiants...
At least there are more forumites that feels like me
Thank you, john n poppy.
Love the two scenic pictures - the one of the elephants in the river, and the giraffe picking leaves - just so beautiful and so Kruger!
Thank you, Bushbuddies. I am glad that you have enjoyed the scenic shots.
Just catching up Kaapsedraai. Another WOW from me. Just love that "airport" shots. That giraffe with teh Baobab and Leadwood tree is indeed very special. Zebra's in early morning light
Red Billed Quellea-the most frustrating bird in all of Kruger-you captured them beautifully. At a water hole nogal
Agree with sentiments about Satara entrance-but it it more than makes up for it with fab sightings in that area
I'm intrigued-what is that thingamajig on the Baby impalas back, next to the Oxpecker?
Looking forward to the Creepy crawlies. They are as fascinating as anything in Kruger!
Thank you noel, while in Kruger going through the motions and excitement with sightings 'rolling' on your camera, you do not realise how privileged one is to enjoy it all. It is only now with the TR, when breaking it in bite-size chunks, that one is really enjoying it, appreciating every moment again and most of all - be able to share it with others.
