Kruger National Park: Day 2 and 3
We decided to venture on our own towards the northern part of the park. With Kruger being about the size of Belgium and the speed limit no more than 50 km/h or 30 mph, it took a while to get to the less populated (by both people and animals) areas of the park. Early on, we completed our quest to find the Big 5, finally checking off my favorite of the 5 - rhinoceros. Although I really wanted to spot a black one, a white one was exciting enough.
Before dark, we made it to the Olifants camp, situated high above the Olifants River. A morning river walk broke up our long sessions in the car concentrating on finding game. Elephants made sure we didn't forget their presence on our way out of the park.
