After a 14 hour flight from New York to Johannesburg I was very glad to land in South Africa and get off my butt. Joan was waiting for me after I picked up my luggage. Then off we headed out of Joburg west to find a place to camp for the night.
The Lover’s Rock Caravan Park had a classic car show going on and I was very surprised to see so many vehicles I actually recognized.
Monday we went Maropong where I toured Sterkfontein Cave. Then drove to Kruger National Park.
The gate was closed by the time we reached Crocodile Gate so we crawled into the back of the truck and slept until about 4:30am. First in in line we drove in at 5:30 registered for five nights to camp and bought my Wild Card.
Almost immediately we saw wildlife. And I took several hundred photos on just the first day.
Also saw plenty of birds.
This little sweetie gave us the eye.
Plus these two in the stripped pajamas.
And this croc was just lying about. Saw a whole lot more.
Before the end of the day.
