Having had a great few days staying in the Greater Kruger region today was the day we moved to our home for the next seven days in Sabi Sand reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park.
We were collected from our Manor House accommodation just outside Hoedspruit at midday and introduced to some of the other photographers who would be joining us on our safari adventure. Our mode of transport was a small minibus with no air conditioning, affectionately referred to as “the pressure cooker” by one of our fellow passengers! By the end of the journey I thought this was a pretty accurate description! The journey took about two hours on very bumpy roads; I don’t think I’ll ever complain about the roads at home again! To be fair, our friendly driver said that the roads are normally better but due to the recent heavy rains they’ve been badly affected and washed away in places with some of the puddles the size of animal watering holes!
At about 14.30 we arrived at our lodge with the anticipation of what was to come.
