Day 60 & 61 - Kruger national park So we started the trip with an early start (4am) and a 5 hour drive to get to the gates of the park. Once in the park we drove round some of the trails on the look out for the wildlife and it wasn't long before we saw our first lion, he was a huge male lion with a massive mane! We carried on along the trails and saw all sorts of other animals ...

The drive to Hazyview took most of the day and we crossed some stunning landscapes as we drove along a valley heading south parallel to the Western edge of Kruger National Park in Limpopo province. There were some beautiful rock hills and we passed through some pretty towns which felt like Alpine Switzerland.
The campsite (Hotel Numbi) was in the centre of Hazyview and it felt like our few weeks in the wilderness of Africa ...
