Kruger National Park


Two years ago we had one of our most memorable trips visiting Mozambique! To top it off, we took a day trip to Kruger National Park in South Africa, which was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience. We spent an entire day there, only seeing 10% of the whole park, and still saw so many beautiful animals, including 4/5 of the Big Five. I remember the anticipation of wondering what animals we’ll see next as we drove around various different landscapes and ecosystems. Breathtaking!

And then buffalo, Big Five #2. We also saw a rhino and a leopard, but we couldn’t capture them, and no lions– this time.

We also saw warthogs, hyena, kudu– a beautiful antelope species with twisted horns– which was one of my favorites. We sure hope to go back someday for more safari adventures!
