A not so quiet January

Januaries generally tend to be a little quieter on the safari front - post holiday season; mid sticky summer; empty wallets; new year resolutions; I'm sure you will have one reason or another......

However when a safari does happen, Kruger can be far from quiet with great animal sightings.

As there are fewer people in the park we have to work harder ourselves to find the animals amongst the lush vegetation, but they often come out into the open for us, a reward for patience and perseverance.

I'm back in Kruger tomorrow, for the first time this month and these photos from a January 4 years ago are winding me up in anticipation!

Thanks Jackie - lots of early rain does the trick. Just the centre and further north had to wait a bit longer....

Hey Sonja - you'll have to make more trips up from the deep south and get back into the bush :)
