Baobab outside Balule camp
We are back in Cape Town after a two week trip that took us by road from Cape Town - South Africa's Southwestern coastal tip, to Kruger Park, in its Northeastern, Lowveld corner. We traveled from the green wet winter and snowcapped mountains of the Western Cape to the dry blonde grasses and baobab trees of Mpumalanga. We have thousands of dusty kilometers under our belts and feel as though we have been a lifetime away.
Dawn drives and thermoses of coffee, nighttime fires and beds under the tall peaks of thatched rondavels, elephants trumpeting in the bush near our tent, hyenas whickering in the light of our fire, and the comfortable grunt of nocturnal hippos. Freezing nights and summer days, and Karoo lions roaring at sundown.
