Greetings from Kruger National Park day 1, 2014 of the South Africa diversity EcoTour.
After driving in circles and camping at Hans Merensky Dam in Tzaneen we headed for Kruger National Park. Entering through Phalaborwa Gate we made reservations for two nights at the Tsendze Rustic camp. An elephant greeted us along the way.
We stopped at Shipandani Hide to be further welcomed by a herd of Impala.
Woodland Kingfisher and Carmine Bee-eater
The bird hides offer an opportunity to get out of the car, stretch the legs a bit and enjoy the view.
We arrived at Tsendze, where you must get out of your vehicle to open the gate, to discover it’s rustic beauty included no electric power which would have been fine if we didn’t have computer work to do.
So instead we drove to Letaba to camp. Set up along the fence a bushbuck strolled by several times. Bought some Wors (sausage) to braai (BBQ) for dinner and enjoyed a peak at the sunset before calling it a night. Bedtime comes early on safari as wake-up call happens around 4:30 am. An ungodly hour for me but always worth it to get out for a morning game drive when the animals are still active.
