Okay, so it is day two on safari and we are
heading back to Kruger National Park. The focus today is going to be to find animals
like being around the water. So we’re going to be visiting a watering hole maybe seeing
some buffalo, some hippos and we’ll see what else we can find. So again, it’s an early
start. It’s around five thirty in the morning and we’re going to head on out there. So far, so good as far as the weather today.
It looks like we’re going to have a lot better visibility. We had an amazing sunrise to witness
this morning. But it is chilly and so we’re all bundled up. It’s a lot colder than it
was yesterday but the sun is coming out. We actually had a little bit of drizzle yesterday,
so it’ll be warmer. Just waiting for it to get warmer. And I think we’re going to have
even better visibility for photos and video in terms of taking shots of the animals. So,
exciting stuff! Okay, so a pretty cool morning so far. We managed to
spot the ever elusive leopard. So that was pretty cool. And we also saw a heard of elephants
that were just crossing the road. There was about fifteen or twenty of them, so that was
also a pretty impressive sight. One of the coolest things that I’ve seen today
was at a watering hole. There was a crocodile and it was waiting for an impala to drink.
And it was so close to attacking it. Like we almost saw this ridiculous crazy scene. Anyways, the crocodile was unsuccessful and
it ended up attacking another crocodile. And we captured a bit of that footage. One safari tip to consider is to dress with
all kinds of layers. This morning it was freezing. I had on a fleece, I had on a windbreaker
and now by the afternoon I’m peeling down to just this tiny kind of athletic shirt.
And you’ve got thick jogging pants on. Yeah, so I wish I had shorts right now for that. Alright, so we are wrapping up our second
day of safari. We’re going to be heading to the campgrounds soon and we’re going to have
our first braai for dinner and apparently that is South African barbecue so it should
