The last two days in Kruger were just as exciting as the first four days!
We continued our game drives on our own, after two safaris with the rangers, one in Satara Camp at sunset; and, one in Letaba Camp at sunrise.
This was a rare sighting, and we were asked to log it in the rangers’ books to help with tracking of the fish eagles.
We went to an awesome museum in Letaba dedicated mostly to the Great Tuskers, but also, they had some other great displays, too.
Some of these big guys live 50-60 years!
The rangers in the SA parks are doing everything they can to protect their animals (we really appreciate that), although right now the Rhino is on the endangered list — yes, because of poachers!
I wanted to share some more stunning photos and videos with my blog followers because they just never get old……and we were right there……. staring each other in the face! Yes, my parents and I, in awe, with our jaws dropping to the floor……but also, we were staring right in the eyes of the big game animals!
We saw four of the Big Five, all except the rhino, but we feel so fortunate to have seen so much wildlife in their natural habitat. We all agreed that we would see the rhino the next time!
But hippos aren’t so bad…..
It’s hard to believe we are more than half way through our RTW (around the world trip)!
I feel very lucky to have this safari experience and RTW trip with my parents!
The end again! 🙂
