Every day at Kruger National Park began with a beautiful sunrise.
After breakfast, and no we didn’t have guinea fowl although we threatened to every morning,
Joan and I headed out into the wilds to see who we could see looking at us.
These banded mongoose were just waking up and playing in the sun.
Stopped for more coffee at the Muzandzeni Picnic Site. You can only get out of your vehicle in designated and fenced areas. Right Joan?
This is to protect you from animals like the baboons, whom Joan described as the nastiest critters around.
Back out cruising the road we saw this black-backed jackal stroll out of the bush.
And watched this tailless elephant take a dust bath,
while the ladies took a proper bath nearby.
And this saddle-billed stork fished for lunch.
An elusive cliff springer watched us from on high.
Lower Sabie Rest Camp, where we hoped to stay, was full so instead we hung out at the swimming pool for a while.
Which we didn’t have to share with the hippos.
On the way back to Sukuza Rest Camp for the night we saw several warthogs.
