It’s late, I’m tired, but it’s worth noting that our first safari day was a huge success. In only one day in the Kruger Park, we saw pretty much everything. Lions, hippos, giraffes, elephants, hyena, water buffalo, crocodiles, zebra, and an infinite number of impala. Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the day.

These elephants walked out of the forest and scared all the hippos into the water. Elephants take no shit from anyone.

In a different location we managed to get close to this guy. He was part of a small “ostracized mature male” group. The matriarchs of the larger family groups won’t put up with any old man elephant shit.

And this pair of lions…wow!

Lots more good pics to share, but these are some standouts. More of the same tomorrow.
