olifants river


The photo above was taken after a long day of wildlife stalking. At Kruger National Park, visitors are required to head back to camp, promptly, before 6pm because the park authorities want to ensure no one is out with scary beasts after dark. Our driving route was planned every morning so that we could pace ourselves and try to stay out until the very last moment. Sitting in the car all day would leave us with cramped legs (it was worth it). We took a walk around our bungalow, which overlooked 'Olifants River', in order to stretch them out and prepare them for another day of driving.

  7. Congrats on your first year blogging.

    I remember seeing the Olifants River a few times, once with hippos visible. Such a wonderful park, even with sitting in the car all day so worth it.

    Safe travels and I look forward to more.
