Kruger Park – Olifants Rest Camp – Sunset Game Drive

For breakfast we were visited by a Grey Go Away Bird and a Red billed Hornbill. Then we spent about an hour at the lookout point at Mopani Rest Camp watching the many elephants bathing. They were swimming and playing in the water. Whole herds kept coming and going from the bush.

Afterwards we went to Olifants Rest Camp where we rented a bungalow. At 16:30 the evening safari Sunset Game Drive started. We didn’t quite like the guide as he started off a bit unfriendly and listless. It was a larger jeep/bus with an open top and 30 guests. We were able to admire the sunset at the Olifantsriver and we saw many animals on our drive into the night. Elephants, giraffes, zebra, hippo, civet, hyena, springhare, kudu and impala, …. . In the distance we saw a thunderstorm in the night sky. Our absolute highlight today , a leopard. He was completely relaxed on the side of the road, but then went into the bush, because the flashlights probably annoyed him.
