South Africa Day 5

Hi folks back in contact again after our journey to the south of The Kruger National Park.

We left Hoedspruit just after 9-45 to make our way into The Park at the Orpen Gate en route to Satara and then onto Lower Sabie Camp for 3 nights. The Park has eleven entrances nine on the South African border and two on the Mozambican border. The Park has a staggering diversity of wildlife and plant species and beautiful unspoilt scenery. Whilst I have been here the temperature has soured every day into the high 30’s.

On entering the Orpen gate we immediately saw two Rhino and male Lion in the distance along with Zebra and Impala. Lunch was taken at Satara after making confirming our booking for Lower Sabie.

The vegetation changed very quickly as we climbed out of the Veld still on the main H10 road and then wildlife sightings increased as well.

We came across a water hole with two magnificent Lions a male and female we stayed here for a while watching them no more than 4/5 m in front of us. Elephants were in abundance as we got closer to Lower Sabie and the Sabie river. 

Anne, Stan and I had a wonderful meal overlooking the river and finished off our meal with a full on toffee cream which was very sweet so definitely high calorie count here.

A super day traveling down from Hoedspruit.
