From Johannesburg, Sharon, Andrew, Diana, Robert, Nat (Sharon's son) and myself drove north to Hoedspruit, at the foot of the Klein Drakensberg mountains. We visited Sharon's friends there and then the following day we set off on Safari.
In total we spent around 2 and a half days in Kruger National Park. We spent 2 nights in lodges in the park itself which meant we could do both sunrise and sunset safaris. We saw a huge number of animals.
We would stop for breakfast in lunch in various lodge restaurants which mostly had amazing view of the nature and wildlife in the park.
The waterholes were great places to spot wildlife. Here there is a hyena approaching an impala.

There were lots of zebras and giraffes - it was great to be so close to them.
Impala are known as the McDonalds of the park - everyone snacks on them!
