Had to take my sister back to Phalaborwa so I saw a n opportunity for two long days drives in Kruger. Arrived at Phabeni Gate at the crack of dawn to be met by long car ques at the gates. The reception office did not look busy so I took my chances there. Was in and out within minutes. Was nice to to drive past all those cars still waiting patiently in front of the gates.

The problem with such a long drive is one cannot stay too long at sightings as there must be time for pit stops as well. Our first stop was Tsokwane where we bought Buffalo Pies for breakfast. Expensive but good value for money.

The stretch from Letaba to Phalaborwa was quiet. Only saw Impala. 

After dropping my sister off we drove to Hoedspruit where we slept over at friends. 

After a good nights rest and a great breakfast we left for Orpen Gate. The road from Hoedspruit to Orpen goes past a lot of game ranches. Saw quite a lot of animals on the other side of the fences.

Arrived at Orpen Gate around 10 am so again not much time to hang around at sightings.

Just before Satara was a lion and a kill. The road and sighting was blocked with cars, jeeps and a large bus with schoolchildren. The children were so rowdy the lion eventually ran for shelter about 100 meters away. Fortunately they did not scare this pair of vultures.

At the dam just outside Satara was a leopard kill still fresh in the tree. Lots of cars but no one had seen the leopard.

The dam was busy with a variety of animals to be seen.

Jy vertel so lekker....voel of ek ook op die trip was. Dankie vir weereens besondere foto's. Ek was so paar jaar terug met n voortrekker kamp met n bus as dagbesoeker in by KNP. My opinie.....hulle moet busse daar verbied. Met my in die bus kon mens sien hoe irriteer jy ander mense in karre.

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Hi Brian. We definitely did not share the same tree to relax under.smile

You remember! Tannie Elsa is fine. Also regards to Tannie Jenny.wink Was a nice rally in Botswana.

The family tree has not received much attention of late.
