Kruger National Park - Day One
We left our campsite at 8:00 this morning for a 40 minute drive to Kruger National Park.
Here we are with our safari driver Happy (who did an excellent job of finding the animals for us to see).
Our tour guide Johanna gave us a Souther African Animal checklist so we could mark off the animals we saw while on the game drive. We ended up spotting 13 animals and 4 birds, so the day was definitely a success. It was definitely a hot day, but with the jeep on the move, it really wasn’t too bad. We were in the park almost six hours before heading back to our camp.

We were all very hot and tired after returning to the camp. After taking a short nap, we dipped our feet in the water and enjoyed drinks before dinner.
