The Kruger Park

Thanks for the comments! I haven't had good internet access lately (surprise surprise) since i've been in the bush. I'm sitting at a take away breakfast/lunch spot overlooking the Sabie River in a Bush camp. there are some Kudu in the marshes..and probably more we can't see!

We drove around all days yesterday and got pretty lucky! We saw lions mating, a leopard, hippos, elephants, giraffes, kudus, buffalo, rhinos (one with a baby!) monkeys, baboons, impala, bushbuck, waterbuck, redthornbill birds and many many more!! Driving around is very slow, and our eyes are just glued to the window to see if we can spot anything at all. Getting out of the car can pose a huge fine, as well as feeding any monkeys or littering..and especially speeding (up to a few thousand rand each). The bush is so vast it's hard to describe, Kruger is the size of Wales..and its full of nothing! It's a nice feeling to really feel in the middle of nowhere..and of course the humans are the ones in cages!! Check out the photo gallery, we're off for the day!!
