Cruising through Kruger National Park on the second day proved to be full of wildlife, both big and small.
If you’ll remember, Joan and I saw ALL the BIG 5 on our first day in Kruger National Park. You might think that would be hard to beat. No way. Joan had me up before sunrise every day. Of course she also had the coffee made, such a sweet woman.
We would be out the gate at sunrise, the best time to catch some animals like this waterbuck in the golden light.
wildebeest, giraffe, zebra, marabou storks, kudus
Then spend the morning slowing cruising the roads, scanning back and forth. By noon we’d seen over a dozen species.
Joan let me practice driving on the right side, seemingly wrong to me, of the vehicle and left side of the road.
And we had lunch at Oliphants Rest camp plus saw some Bug Lady wildlife.
Continuing on safari we were attacked by these turtles…
…as this crocodile lay idly by…
…and this snake tried to ignore our plight.
But we were able to seek shelter, first under this ancient Baobab Tree,
and then at Letaba Rest Camp where we hid in visited the Elephant Museum. (See what happens when the turtles get to you.)
Back to camp for dinner and then a guided “Night Ride” with a very unfunny thought he was a comedian driver/guide.
We did get to see a few animals.
But the best part of the night ride was the sunset.
