Finally made it!!
Finally I have some internet and lets hope the connection is strong enough to upload some photos this time!
After Swaziland we made it to Kruger!!!
I bought a tent and a camper chair in Malelane before we went through the gate, very exciting!
We stayed in Skukuza and Lower Sabie and Satara and Letaba and also Crocodile bridge. All were lovely camps however Crocodile bridge could do with a pool...
The game viewing was so much fun!!! We saw pretty much everything possible apart from Cheetahs..
The hyenas spopilt us and we got some good lion action!
The birds of prey were brilliant and it was all over a fabulous experience, especially for me as I was a safari virgin!
Janis the van only made it for 24 hrs...then after several tows and dramas she spent some time in Komatiepoort getting fixed but we still lacked a starter motor so when we entered Mozambique we had to push the car everytime we needed to start it..haha, quite fun actually!
My beloved tent lasted for 2 nights..then it broke, and then it broke again, and again..im still workiojng on it everytime i put it up. Then the camper
chair broke...but i coped.
We braaied and made lots of veggie burgers in the camps, swam with champagne glasses and met loads of lovely friendly people, everyone wanted to look after the youngsters with the dodgy but beautiful van!
The heat was crazy, as warm as 44 degrees but we loved it!
When Jim and Suus came close to visa panic we went across the border at Giriyondo, crossing over to Mozambique and the Limpopo park. More on that follows..
Enjoy the photos!
