Kruger National Park Game Drive

After an exhausting seven hour drive that included a border crossing from Zimbabwe back into South Africa, we finally arrive at our campsite. Tonight’s camp is a sight for sore eyes. The shared bathroom facilities are on par with a five-star hotel. Yes, you read right! The showers are extremely spacious, clean, insect and cob-web free, and nicely tiled. Each shower stall has a separate dry area where you can hang your clothes, dry off and get dresses. There are mirrors in the bathroom, and lots of them! As vain as this may sound, there have been times on this trip where I have gone for days without seeing myself and it felt kind of weird. Not knowing how my sunburnt, sweaty face looked, or how I tied my hair up that morning in my dark tent… all everyday things I take for granted when I wake up each morning.

The camp grounds are well maintained and fenced in too and there’s a beautiful swimming pool and bar. It was like we were glamping, only I still had to sleep in my tent.

It may be New Years Eve tonight, but this girl is absolutely buggered. It seems I’m not the only one either. We decide to have our “midnight countdown” at 10pm, crack a bottle of champers open and then head to our tents to get some sleep. Party animals, I know.

As amazing as this campsite is, the one thing it does not have is wifi. At this moment in time, I want nothing more than to be able to iMessage my boy back home, wish him a Happy New Year and tell him how much I am missing him  🙁

We have a long, hot day ahead of us tomorrow. Good night.

KRUGER NATIONAL PARK GAME DRIVE

Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves on the continent and offers a wildlife experience that ranks with the best in Africa. It covers an area of 7,580 sq miles and extends 220 miles from north to south, and 40 miles from east to west. All of the Big Five can be found at Kruger, which has more species of large mammals than any other African Game Reserve. I have high expectations for this game drive and am eager to capture some beautiful photography!
