    Tag 1 und die Night Drive Safari

    October 9, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    Wir haben unsere erste Safari gemacht, es war sehr aufregend und man hat schon sehr gute Eindrücke gewinnen können. Vor der Tour gab es ein leckeres 3 Gänge Menü, welches wir bis auf das letzte Krümelchen verspeist haben 😍

    Dann ging es um 20 Uhr los in den Krüger-Nationalpark. Wir hatten Riesengluck und haben gleich zweimal Wildhunde gesehen, was echt selten ist. Dafür sind uns keine Löwen vor die Kamera gelaufen, aber Giraffen und Elefanten sind auch sehr schöne Exemplare 🦒🐘

    Auf dem Weg zurück haben wir unser erstes Richtiges Gewitter zu spüren bekommen. Was zur Folge hatte das es gleich einen Stromausfall im ganzen Ort gab. 😂

    Kruger National Park - Night Safari

    October 20, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Nach elf Stunden Flug in einem ziemlich kühlen und eher älterem Flugzeug sind wir heute morgen in Johannesburg gelandet!
    Dank des netten Stewards, waren wir auch gleich noch mit „flüssigem Vesper“ für unterwegs zu unserem ersten Stop, dem Kruger National Park, versorgt 😎😁

    Unglaublich tolle Landschaften und Tiere haben wir schon bei unserer ersten Night Safari erleben dürfen!
    Sogar: die kompletten Big Five (Elefant, Nashorn, Büffel, Löwe, Leopard)!
    + Giraffen
    + Krokodile
    + Flusspferde
    + und und und... einfach der absolute Wahnsinn!

    Und dass alles keine 24h nachdem wir von daheim los sind... wir fühlen uns wie in einer anderen Welt 😊

    Kruger National Park: Safari Day 2

    December 12, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    The second night we spent in the Olifants camp close to the Olifants river. We didnt‘t book a tour the second day, but were lucky to see some of the big 5 on our own while driving to the Southern parts of Lower Sabi and the Crocodile Gate Bridge where we left the park.

    We learned that the big 5 (elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, rhino) are not that known because of their size, but because they are especially dangerous to their hunters. They would hide in the bush and wait for their predator to attack. What we missed to see out of them were just the leopard and the rhino (both very rare to see and due to poaching the rhino is not allowed to be tracked down on maps also).

    Kruger - Day 2 Sunset drive

    October 3, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    The day between drives is spent relaxing. In our case we caught up on some sleep then chilled out by the pool before our afternoon drive. This time we found a couple of lioness with cubs about 4 months old, plenty of zebra crossing and a tree full of vultures which usually indicates a carcass and a predator cat nearby but we could not see what they were interested in.

    At the end of the drive we had sundowner drinks and Brad managed to capture some brilliant African sunset shots.

    Kruger

    October 2, 2019 in South Africa ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Very early start with 7am flight from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg (1.5hrs), then another flight to Nelspruit (30mins), then another hour and a half bus ride to Kruger National Park. We were picked up in the safari trucks to take us to our lodges - Shishangeni Lodge. We had only travelled for 10 minutes and we had already seen impalas, warthogs, giraffes, elephants, hippos, zebra, a cheetah, a hornbill bird and some other birds that I can't remember the name of. Amazing, and we had not even done a game drive yet.

    The lodges are very nice, very private. In fact you can have a bath or shower overlooking the bush. There was even an impala looking in the window at us when we arrived at our room.

    The late afternoon game drive was awesome. In addition to the animals already mentioned, we also saw a crocodile, rhinos, the magnificent kudu with its twisty horns, and saw the hippos, elephants and cheetahs close up. To finish off the drive we stopped for sundowners (drinks in the bush at sunset.) It was all a great experience and can't wait until tomorrow to do it all again.

    Crocodile Bridge

    May 11, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Picked up our friend, Cindy, at Jo'burg airport and drove to our first campsite in Kruger. Drive took a little longer than expected and arrived at sunset. Had lots of 'fun' setting up our camp for the first time as the sun was setting, but eventually got settled and quickly reminded of two things: 1. night time is noisy in the African bush and 2. monkeys are quick. Yes, we were mugged by monkeys, again, 1st day into our camping trip. Went out for a drive next morning with some great animals - giraffes, elephants, buffalo, hippos, crocs and lots of other great critters (Cindy would request we mention the adorable warthogs). Also, very lucky to spot two rhino. Two nights at this camp then heading up north.Read more

    Lower Sabie

    May 13, 2017 in South Africa ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Moved up north to Lower Sabie camp. Tonight we are in a bungalow since no campsites were available. Since it is raining, we do not mind. Our typical routine is up around 5am, light breakfast and out of camp at 6. Drive for a 2-3 hours looking for animals and back to camp for early lunch, relax and head out again for another drive in the afternoon or close to sunset when animals tend to be more active. Great lion sighting today. Three females waking up then walking down the road in front and beside our car. Stayed with them for an hour or so before they disappeared into the bush. Also lots of elephants, zebras, giraffe and different kinds of antelope.Read more

    Watching these young elephants goofing around in the mud was a highlight (one of many) of the trip. They acted like the little kids they are - you could almost hear them giggling. I smile every time I think of it. Thank you guys for opening this door for me!! xxxxx
