So in March around the braai one friday evening my sister and I got the Idea to go on a quick roadtrip to Kruger. I think mys sister was kind of jealous because she had missed my last 2 trips to Kruger and as much as she wouldnt admit it Im sure the bug was bitting.
Unfortunately my sister is a school teacher so her time is limitted to the busier times of the year, we had 2 options the easter week end or the Looooong week end at the end of April. The choice was made for us because of a family wedding over the easter weekend, which is the week end we would have preffered because the other week end looked really busy.
We Finally managed to find accomadation for 3 nights, Satart, Orpen and Letaba. So at 4:30 on the 28th of April we departed Day 1 Arrival
We had a good trip, the road was quiet and there was no mist
We arrived at Malelane gate at 8:30 the plan was to drive to Afsaal for breakfast and then a slow drive up to Satara. We were greeted by Eco junkie at the gate, where she noticed the 2012 cricket shirt my sister was wearing.The gate was still very busy and we only got through at 9.
The first animal we spotted was a big Daga boy, who had a broken HornUntitled

After a slow drive we arrived at Afsaal, which was crazy busy, we decided to give it a skip as we had enough padkos in the car and rather stop at Skuks
After a slow un winding drive with some general game we arrived at skukuza, after sitting in a jam of about 8 cars at the gate, which was a bad sign. The Canteen was madness so we decided to get something from the shop after picking up a pie and a coke, we decided to escape the craziness and head off to Satara......
