Most of the day was spent driving from Jo’burg to Kruger, about 6 hours. I never realized how much difference an iPod could make. Thank you Mac.
After quickly checking into the Tremisana Lodge, we went for a sunset game drive. Within minutes I saw baby giraffes to my right, guinea fowl running across dirt paths, zebra tentatively watching us from a safe distance and herds of wildebeests in fields.
Dinner was served under the velvet night sky, stars twinkling brightly. The German couple and I tried to identify the unfamiliar formations – knowing theoretically we should be able to locate the Southern Cross, in reality we never found it. But loved searching anyway.
