The first camp we arrived at was Skukuza. I have such fond memories of being here when I was a child, it was one of our favorite campgrounds.
The rondavels (houses) we used to stay in, I had to take a photo to show you all
The main store on the camp, it's huge and it has food and souvenirs and all sorts of stuff
Nicholas and Taryn-Lee enjoying the ride while we waited for everyone to get out of the store so we could go eat
It was great, only problem is that the roof was covered in bats. Yeah you heard right....BATS! Live ones too, they didn't bother me because I know they're nocturnal LOL But the kids couldn't stop staring at them, I guess they were scared that they would swoop down at some point
Jasmine, Tiffany, Taryn-Lee, Curt and my Dad
My Nicholas....watch how all the open cans have napkins folded over them...there were so many bees around there and the kids were terrified
You can also eat at one of these tables which is overlooking the little river
On the way back to our camp, it's very common to have to constantly stop so that a group of animals can get across, and they take their sweet time too LOL
A Zebra just off the road
I love these guys, these are the Great Kudu, I just love the markings on the body and in their ears
One of the hardest animals to spot are the Rhinoceros, but we were lucky enough to see this one close to our campgrounds
Now THAT is a huge herd of elephants
And that concluded that day, we arrived back at Berg-en-Dal camp at about 5:30pm which is cutting it close to the time the gates close. You do NOT want to be stuck out there at night!
Tomorrow I'll take you to Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie Camps....you're going to love them. In the meantime, how about you look at this photo and imagine how amazing it must be to stay there for a week or two.
