Safari Time!



Wake up call..5:00 a.m Why not? We are on vacation and don't want to miss a moment. I've been up since 4:00 a.m. ready to go!

Kruger National Park has a rich history, both natural and cultural which can be traced back to early mankind. There is quite a bit of evidence that prehistoric man roamed this region between 100,000 and 500,000 years ago. Kruger National Park is one of the worlds greatest game parks. It is also known for its efforts in nature conservation, professional management of wildlife and the safeguarding of African cultural heritage.

The safari vehicles have arrived to cart us into the "bush"! It is still dark out... and a bit chilly but the excitement overrides all of this (for me anyway).
Coffee and rusks to get us started:


Lunch bags filled with snacks to keep us nourished during the day:


Time to hop in the vehicles:


And off we go!


We are on the looked for the "Big Five" today! We spot 2 of the 5...the cape buffalo and the elephant and lots of other wildlife! We are happy with what we see today, after all, its a safari, not a zoo.... animals will come when they will


This is only the beginning! We thought we spotted a rhino but it was a rock ... we will call that one "the big six"! Nice try, though....
