Wendy and her first Safari in Africa!

We had to get up very urlie, like 4.30 AM, because we had a big Krugerpark Safari the whole day.... I slept in a camp in Krugerpark, caled 'Bergen Dal Camp'. At 6Am we were driving in a big Safari trip with a small group of around 10 people. It was sooo wonderful to see the wild animal in action.... Most of them were asleep, but we were very lucky that day.... That day it,s was hot, but not to hot... It was great driving in a open jeep with a wind in you hair.... I was so lucky that I had my camera ready to make great shots.... It was realy impressive to see the wild animals that close in real life... We saw small animals, but also the big ones, like the Elephant and the hippo for example.

.. We had a break around 1 PM to get something to eat. It took a while to get the foods, but I know now that the African people take it easy heyhey... In Europe we are always in a hurry and time is importent.... The foods was good and I bought my first souvenier there in the Krugerpark....Afther the break we saw so many different anymals and almost the big 5 during that day, like the Elepant, Lion, Buffalo and the Rhino.. We missed the Leopart that day, but we had tonight a night safari.....The most special moment was the moment we saw the lion close being tired and when we had to stop, because the whole family Elefant passing us by on the road.....See the pictures I did made during the Safari... The time flyes and before we know it were back at camp at 3 PM.

Afther the Safai....

At 3 PM we had a relax moment and I just it to take a shower and cleaning up.... At 4.45 PM we had a nother safari, but then when it,s dark.... We saw also many animals and it got dark around 6 PM.... We had big lamps in the trucks to use to see the animals.... One moment we saw the Leopard... It was so special and it was hard to see and to make a pictures off... Also my battery went out of my camera... grrrrrrr.... Before we know it, it was gone.... I was so glad others could make pictures of the animal... The guide was telling us that the Leopard is not easy one to find... We were lucky to see the big 5 today... When we drive more.... The was a nother special moment... We had like 6 lions on the road... It gave a special feeling how they walked and looked.... They stopped a moment an later on the passed our truck in a line together.... My day was good and was so special... Normaly you see those animals on TV or in a zoo, but now for real...  The Safari was a few hours and afther that we got foods at the camp..... Afther that we sat a moment at the campfire and talked......Later on I went to bed to my tent....
