Kruger National Park

I adored my time here.  Nothing could have prepared me for the size of the park.

Our first 'camp' was Olifants.  We had a rondavel which had the kitchen outside in the balcony area that overlooked the river.  Brilliant layout because you get to be outside whilst you cook and get the views.

Our view of Olifants River from our rondavel.

Our kitchen and our wee friend in the kitchen.

One morning I booked to go on the morning mountain bike adventure.  Loved it, for the same reason as the Sweni Wilderness Trail - that you have no noise.  We were very lucky to see a couple of rhinos on the other side of the river from where we were watching the hippos.

Our ranger and the vehicle that got us to the starting point.
