Hi there All

I am so so excited, only 3 1/2 months to go until my dream Kruger wedding.

After sorting through things to take with them or dump, I came across a box of slides on the “to dump” pile. I spent a few days scanning all the slides onto a hard drive and came across many ol...

Re: Caracal

Every day in Kruger is magical to us whether we see a butterfly all day or the Big 5... But on one occasion we had such a stunning day I have to notch it up as my best day in Kruger ever.

Re: Idiots

Dont worry we had a similar experience in December. we stopped at a martial eagle that had just caught a huge snake crossing the road right outside lower sabie gate.

Re: Caracal

Our best experience ever was a very, very lucky day we had in the park approx 2 years ago. We started the morning seeing a beautiful young leopard trying to get into a warthog hole along side the h1-2 to Satara.
