Lions, and Leopards and Giraffes Oh My

Blog for June 29/30
Kruger Park

We saw giraffes!!! And four of the big five. After a pleasant drive from Joburg (yes, I finally called it Jo burg) we arrived at the Croc River Lodge just outside Kruger Park on Friday. We made prints of animals as we talked about printmaking and other events of our first week. We were in line at 6:00 am on Saturday ready to go on a lion hunt! What an amazing day we spent looking for animals (found at least 29 different species) and learning about this amazing place. Also took a sunset guided drive and learned even more. Sadly over two hundred rhino’s have been poached this year alone and it is a serious problem. Sunday morning a quiet breakfast, some writing and back to the airport to catch a plane for Cape Town.
