Photo Essay of Kruger National Park

I hope you enjoy these photos that I took during our recent safari in Kruger National Park:

P1000966

Warthog greeted us at the Paul Kruger Gate

P1010054

Lions on the road made us wonder if we would get to Satara Rest Camp before the gate closed (we did).

P1010315

We learned the difference between white rhinos and black rhinos – these are white rhinos

P1020680

Magnificent elephants in their natural surroundings.

P1010023

This male kudu has such unique markings on his face – almost like war paint.  Love the length of his horns as well.

P1010304

An endangered Saddle Billed Stork – it stood about 5 feet tall!

What a cute little monkey

P1010667

A pride of lions took down this Cape Buffalo and was able to finish him off in about 5 hours.  Hyenas ate the bones.

If you can notice, the white stripes held a brown stripe in this species of zebras.

Profile of three lions

P1010033

This is how close we were to so many animals – loved seeing the many giraffes.

P1010101

We saw many beautiful birds – particularly this one – the lilac breasted roller

P1010444

Caught this elephant mid stream.  Looks like he is balancing a ball.

P1010651

Such a stately and beautiful animal.

P1010223

We saw several bones around the Kruger as well.

P1010637

Very, very early in the morning at Camp Shawu
