Kruger National Park - Part 2


Our first night at the Kruger National Park was spent at the Mopani Camp. It's named after the mopane trees, which have a distinct butterfly shaped leaf. We saw these trees in their beautiful autumn colors. We stayed in the spacious thatched cottages and cooked our meat on the outside fire. In South Africa it's called a braai, which is the same as a barbecue.

Kruger National Park - Part 1


My in-laws took us to South Africa's Kruger National Park for five days at the beginning of July. We flew from Cape Town to Johannesburg, then rented a large van and drove to the Kruger. We arrived at the Phalaborwa Gate by late afternoon. We drove toward the Mopani Rest Camp where we spent our first night. We saw quite a lot of game in the few hours of daylight that was left.
