Kruger National Park, South Africa
Quick update - we are in Kruger National Park in South Africa.
We got up this morning at 5 am and headed out of our Tent/Camp at 5:30 am in search for the "Big Five" (Elephant, Leopard, Lion, Water Buffalo, and Rhino). Within 10 minutes of leaving camp we spotted a small herd of Elephants right off the road. It was absolutely beautiful and it could not have been more amazing. Then not too much after that we saw Zebras, again just right off the road. (Just so you know in Kruger the best way to view the animals is to drive in your own car and explore. FYI - we are still in our mini car, that is so small it looks like one of those kiddie cars where the kids push with their feet in order to move.)
And so our day developed with sightings of the Big 5 as well as giraffes, hippos, warthogs, beautifully colourful birds, a very poisonous green snake etc. We are having the best time!!!
