Good Evening from the Kruger National Park!




I only wish I could have brought every single one of you with me, I'm sitting here and it's 8pm, there is nothing but stars above me and the sound of lions in the distance......yes, I'm at the Kruger National Park and I'm extremely happy.




I don't have much internet access time here so this has to be a short one, tomorrow afternoon I will be back in Johannesburg and then I'll write a longer post from my dad's house. I just thought that it would be a great idea to pop in and say hi and let you all know what I'm up to.




From sunset walks along the Rhino trail, to long and exciting car rides through elephant herds, groups of baboons and tons of giraffes and rhinos, to sitting at the cabin surrounded by NOTHING but darkness and the sound of crickets. It's heavenly and it's something that I hope you all will one day have the pleasure of doing.




Anyway, dinner is ready so I must get off here. I'm going to try and post at least one picture of what is surrounding me so that you can see exactly what I mean.




Until tomorrow, stay safe and tons of hugs and kisses.

Dear Sandra,

I would love to know exactly where you are staying at Kruger, and how you made your reservations. The next time we are in SA I really want to try to go there, but I know reservations in the park can be tricky. Did you also reserve your Rhino trail walk etc ahead?

Enjoy!

How fun to hear from you all the way from Africa, Sandra. I can't tell you how happy I am for you. I know being with your family again has to be the most wonderful feeling in the world.

This is going to be great - you sharing this adventure with all of us.

Enjoy every moment. Trips like this don't happen nearly as often as we'd like them to. :-)

Hi Sandra,
I'm so glad you could make this wonderful trip. I wish I were sitting out there with you -- it sounds so peaceful. Have a great time!

Oh my God!!!! What awesome pictures. I love the one on top. The only elephant I ever saw was the one at the Honolulu zoo and you never really can see him that good, he is always so hot that he stays by the cool stone house. This place looks awesome. I am so glad to hear you are having a wonderful time. I'll bet the kids are amazed. How are you ever going to get everyone to come home after this?
