Kruger National Park - Part 10

Today's photos were taken on our second afternoon at Pafuri in the Kruger National Park while on another game drive. The most exciting moment of the drive was watching the majestic bachelor bull elephants walking through the fever trees. The sound of trees cracking by their trunks in the stillness of the forest was like gunfire. The elephants also crossed the road in front of us, which you can see in one of the photos.

The fever trees were once thought to cause fevers by the early settlers, who didn't know about malaria at the time, and that is how the trees got their name. Interestingly, photosynthesis takes place in the tree's greenish yellow bark.

Another special location on our game drive was at the wetlands. We saw a wide variety of birds and the water lilies were shining in the sun's rays as it hung low in the sky. Our last stop of the evening was at the Limpopo River for sun-downers.
