I'm a proudly South African in heart and soul.
Day is life, as the roars of lions echo, and the galloping of the antelope fade.
Night is death, as the laughs of the hyena haunt you,and the bush is filled with the sounds of terrorized creatures. But between the beauty all is quiet,
As the sun appears

Born and bred AFRICAN ...

The early morning mists the steam rising from the grass the smell of the first rains the clap of thunder the omf omf of the lion, the cry of the fish eagle....this is the blood in my veins and no matter where I find myself in the world at the end of the day I sit up with my back against the Accacia tree sharing the shade surveying the unspoilt plains and know where I will always be!

South African. Live in Gauteng, but thankful we have places like KNP. Our annual visits (4 hours drive away) is what keeps me going. My grandparents retired to the Lowveld (White River) and my fondest childhood memories are of each school holiday when we visited them. My grandfather would take us for day trips into the Kruger entering at Numbi gate and he taught my brothers and I the wonders of nature. To this day, all of us are avid KNP enthusiasts. Thanks, Oupie. Never forget you.
