Opening afternoon of Kruger. We saw plenty of animals on the drive in from the airport to the lodge (including the great pun picture of a “zebra crossing”) so it looks really promising and the terrain is very different from that on Sabi Sands. Sabi Sands was more flat and open whereas this area of Kruger is more hilly with move vegetation.
From a photographic standpoint the drive was a little disappointing as we lost the light before we saw anything really interesting. We were out looking for another cheetah and we did spot him, but he was a fair way away from the vehicle and it was too dark to take a picture. The highlight, however, was the return journey where we caught sight of a serval which is a small cat (about half the size of a leopard). Again, I couldn’t get a picture as it was too dark and I’d already put my camera away. Still, with the drive in and the light we had we got to see the following:
