All aboard, lets head out for a drive :D :D

This is some clever behaviour from this water monitor , He was using his body and tail as a scoop in a small pool. He would start from the middle and slowly move to the side of the pool blocking small fish from escaping, we could see some of the small fish jumping over his body and tail. He would then flick his tail and head and catch small fish he managed to scoop from the pool. We watched him performing this trick for about half an hour. Very clever indeed. :thumbs_up: :big_eyes: :big_eyes:

as you can see, when you travel with me , we look for all sorts of Kruger secrets. Fascinating stuff :thumbs_up:

Image

and then we manage to find the last of the big five

that was not a bad drive :thumbs_up: I wonder what Kruger will dish up next????
I hate it when the voices in my head go silent.......I never know what they are planning. :roll:

So when is old enough to know better supposed to kick in ?

That was not a bad trip at all, the Kruger dished up the big 5, cheetahs and dogs, plenty insects, reptiles,birds and most of all, the peace and quiet that makes Kruger such a special place.

I really recommend that sometimes you all just stop your car in the Kruger, switch off the engine, and just listen, its good for the soul. The "noisy" quiet is something most people forget to enjoy when they are in the middle of Mother Natures Garden. Kruger is not about charging about looking for game, it is all around you all the time.

I hope to see you all in the Kruger soon, and don't forget the yellow ribbons :thumbs_up:
Please pop in and visit us at anytime, the
