Day 19 - A rainy day in Kruger

A heavy storm blew in last night from Mozambique and the rain thundered onto our tent all night long, around mid morning the rain eased and gave us a chance to sit on the deck and watch the lazy Sabie river flow by.

In the afternoon we went on another Safari in Kruger park with our guide Bernard and the only other guests to accompany us were two vets from London, so they seemed well informed about the wildlife. Once again there was plenty of game at close quarters to view including Rhino, Giraffe, Waterbuck, impala, Hyena and a host of colourful birds.

 By far the best thing we saw was a small group of elephants that moved towards us and stopped at around 10 meters from our jeep and were feeding on maroula. They stood around us flapping their great ears and swaying their trunk, what a sight it was.

Then a baby elephant walked out of the troupe, stood right in front of us and proceeded to do a kind of two minute dance for us, luckily we caught him on film so we can relive that special moment.
On the drive back to camp we once again view the most splendid sunset over the Kruger National Park.
