South Africa – Kruger National Park – Oliphants Camp

From the Panorama Route we travelled to Kruger National Park. We had 4 nights in the park and stayed at 2 different camps. The 1st camp was Oliphants overlooking the Oliphants river. It would have been great to sit and eat overlooking the river but this wasn’t possible due to the unusually high winds whilst we were there, but we still managed to do a braii (BBQ). We had an early morning game drive here as well as the self driving that we did everywhere. Here are a few of the shots I took.
