Kruger National Park - Part 7


Our second day at the Kruger National Park was a Sunday. We arrived at the Pafuri Camp, which boasts 5-star tented accommodation along the Luvuvhu River. Every day we went out on game drives with our personal game ranger, Hutch. Today's photos include our first game drive and dinner at Pafuri.

Hutch managed to get a rare sighting of a leopard on our first night! He was holding a floodlight while driving the Land Rover in the dark on a dirt road. We were very impressed.

Kruger National Park - Part 5


We saw a wide variety of wildlife while crossing the Shingwedzi River. It was a special experience seeing so many animals and birds in such a short space of time. We then continued our drive north of the Kruger National Park where we saw more elephants and buffalo through the mopane trees.
