A little more Kruger Park for you!

Beautiful South African Sunset


I have so many more photos I want to share with you and once I'm back home in the States I will, but for now I wanted to leave you with a few more pictures taken during our stay.

We stayed at the Berg-en-dal camp and it was amazing, especially at night, you turn off all the lights and are surrounded by the night sounds....crickets, hyenas off in the distance, lions hunting and the occasional bat swooshing by your hair. LOL (I'll tell you all later)




These are the houses we stayed in, they had 2 bedrooms with double beds, shower, bathroom and another bathroom with just a bathtub, a kitchen and two extra beds in the living room. They were wonderful!



The camp has a trail called the "Rhino Trail", it's fenced in all around and you can walk along it to see the animals.......the above picture is of the drinking hole that is part of the trail. At the end of the day you can see the animals coming down to drink.

Now for the animals, I'm not going to post ALL the photos because we would be here forever and I do want to save some for when I get back...then I'll be able to take you pretty much day by day of my trip here and let you see what I've been doing.



And there you have it, just a little bit of what I saw and experienced, I have to say if you want to relax and completely immerse yourself in the wild life, you need to head to the Kruger National Park, and if you have any questions about it or bookings etc, just email me and I will point you in the right direction.

This place looks beautiful. I can't wait to see more. I still can't get over all the animals all over the place where they belong. Nothing like here where we keep building and pushing them all out.

Hi Sandra

I've left a message at your parents' house - don't know if you got it. Other times I phoned and there is no answer.

PLEASE phone me so we can get together - thanks!
