300 buffalo crossing. Longer then waiting for a train
As we left Kruger we saw hyenas and about 300 buffalo crossing the road so included pics of them. As we headed to Botswana we went by the largest diamond mine in South Africa. No tours or seconds store there! It is owned by deBeers. We drove for about 50 Kms on a washboard road and I had my first injury which is road rash on my elbow from the armrest as we bumped along. The border crossing went well we went through SA customs first then crossed a bridge in to Botswana. There we filled out forms and paid for entry. At the border there were hundreds of trucks waiting to go across. We were told some have been waiting for weeks. For the next couple of days we will be driving north towards Chobe National Park. So a break from animal photos for a bit.

Do I have to add a title? It feels like school :D
That’s quite an injury! ;) Did your group all do the border together or were you on your own? Also I assume all the animal shots were taken on a safari or were some from your camper? Anyway...amazing! And trust you...or Mark...to find a crazy sign! That’s always a hobby of ours while travelling :)

Hi most were from our camper except the leopard, cheetah and lions. we went across the border on our own but ended up waiting to pay for the visa with a few other people.
