We take the long way to Kruger and visit some very interesting places.
One spot, God's Window was a 3,000 meter cliff where the HighVeld and LowVeld met.
You looked out over this cliff and it looked like god had just pushed exactly half of the horizon up and half down. It was amazing. See the pics.
... Eastern Line in general as well as a few other places. I took the lead (the first time in a while as I'd previously allowed A to go first so he wouldn't cop the dust on his burns. I'd been made fun of though for having 'sunglasses marks' because all the dust would get my lower face and I'd have a nice mark as I took them off.)

The biggest rule was the speed limit, "game drive speed limit" he said "40kmph is the max but don't go about 30kmph for their first day".
