Sept. 16 – Our last camp in Kruger (Berg-en-Dahl)

Cape buffalo, impalas, lions, kudu…and we complained we didn’t see much on our ride down to our last camp in Kruger. We also saw some ibis and storks for the first time today.  We stopped at a rest stop to have lunch, and were joined by three busloads of schoolchildren, the boys in uniforms of red shirts and black pants, the girls in short red dresses. It was amusing to watch them line up, two to three deep, to photograph a vervet monkey sitting on a tree branch. I guess it’s not just foreign visitors who find the monkeys photogenic.

We got to camp early enough that I was able to enjoy a swim in the outdoor pool – water was chilly but weather was warm! As I swam, I was able to watch the blue starlings and “Go Away” birds in the trees surrounding the pool…along with the palm trees and children chattering in Afrikaans, they reminded me that although I was doing a routine activity, it was in a very different location.
