I know you´ve been waiting for photos from the Kruger Park. It took some time to upload and prepare everything. Each photo is around 12 mb in size so I had to create smaller thumbs for every single photo, else it would take a very long time to load the page even with good internet speed. Anyway the trip to the Kruger Park was great! The Kruger Park is huge, so we covered only a small part of it during the 3 days we spent there. What we saw was a very green and lush park. The nature reminded us to some extent about the swedish landscape with a mix of meadow land and forest. We didn't expect to see that many animals that we actually saw, but When we drove through the park it never took more than 30 minutes to spot an animal. Sometimes it felt like the whole park was crowded with animals and at some points you could barely drive the car on the road since it was blocked with a massive elephant, a herd of zebras, monkeys, etc. The whole experience was beyond expectation. We tried to take photos of every different animal we saw. Sometimes the distance was too far or the photo didn't turn out well for some reason. Either way, here is a collection of the best photos. There were many birds too, some more spectacular than others. Me and Viveka tried our best to get shots of the more cooler birds which you can see below. I´ve done my best to identify all animals and birds, but some will remain unknown.
Let's start with the big five!
Talking about elepants. We were lucky to end up when a group of elephants were fighting next to the road. To see this massive animals break trees, shriek and rush close to you is exciting 🙂
The black rhino is more rare and we didn't spot one. If it wasn't for the poachers we would have been more likely to spot one...
That was the big five! Here are some more animals. You'll probably recognize most of them.
Here are some different antelopes
Another animal famous from the movie "The Lion King"
Then there were some birds and eagles...
Finally two photos with no animals. Just pure nature, but it looked much nicer in reality.
I'm happy that we did the effort to go to the Kruger Park. If the animals are really wild can be discussed. The animals are of course used to humans, but on the other hand I think that's good cause then you can get close to them before they eventually run away.
