Today was a new safari and the guests' first drive was a Sundowner safari.
Their sunset was amazing, and had all the fabulous aspects of the Kruger Park. The sky turned brilliant orange as the sun set, dancing its last rays over the water where the hippos were yawning to show off their strength. The hippos were waking up, adding some lovely bush sounds to the amazing picture.
And even though it was only their first drive, there were already many highlights. But the best thing was meeting this tiny little baby elephant and its mother that was protecting it from harm. She was shielding the baby from the big bad car, and shoving it underneath her so nothing can touch it. If they wanted to come close to the little one, they had to pass her first.
Other animals seen: spotted eagle owl (another highlight as owls is one of the guests most favorite animal), zebras, giraffe, impalas, waterbuck, and last but not least a big bull elephant in must that stopped them from returning to the lodge for quite some time.
