We had three terrific days in Kruger National Park on safari with Chas’s parents. October is a great time to visit Kruger, and this one was especially good as the rainy season hasn’t yet started, there is almost no risk of malaria, and there are lots and lots of baby animals!
Below are some pictures from our trip. With game drives in the early mornings and afternoons, our trip highlights included seeing THREE leopards in one day (of course I forget my camera battery that drive), two great lion and lion cub sightings, finally spotting a rhinoceros, an incredible sunset on a bridge surrounded by elephants, giraffe, hippos, crocodiles, birds and baboons, and the one-man show we witnessed from our safari guide/chef/driver. Seriously—the guy did everything!
P.S. A sad update on increases in rhino poaching in Kruger Park.
