The animals blend right in to their surroundings. I’m not going to be in to naming many of these types of animals, I don’t always remember their names and I’d rather not name them than attach the wrong name to them.

Irene bought this camera and lens especially for this trip. She’s a smart girl.

The landscape of Kruger is completely different from Botswana which makes photographing the animals, and getting a clear shot near to impossible.

The food is wonderful.

Beets are served at most meals. Happy Norman, Happy Linda, Happy Bob. And if beets don’t float your boat, there are plenty of other options as every meal is a buffet.
