Friday January 23rd ~ Kruger National Park (part 2)
This is a continuation of our LONG day at Kruger. If you missed Part 1, you can click here to see our pictures of the “Big Five”.
As thrilling as it is to see the big, (and I do mean BIG) animals, that is only part of the story of Kruger. It is also home to a tremendous variety of smaller animals, snakes (a lot of poisonous ones), spiders, and a huge bird population.
Here are just some of the “other” animals we got to see “in the wild”:
In the middle of the day, we had a short stop on an overlook where we could get out to stretch our legs and take in the view.
There is one more post I am doing on Kruger. It will cover things that crawl and things that fly, as well as our sunset/night-time pictures.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful for the smiles I received as I shared Gus with our group.
The tree is probably some kind of Euphorbia, but there are so many of them all over the world it’s hard to guess which one :). I would go for Euphorbia cooper, though :).
Beautiful animals, by the way, especially Gus!
Thank you so much for helping identify the Euphorbia for us. I was hoping if I threw the question out there that someone would know the answer. Gus is blushing 🙂

Glad to help!
The monkey pictures are stunning!
Thank you Mpho. I always get a kick out of the monkeys. They can be such naughty little guys and still adorable at the same time. The babies melt your heart don’t they?!
Thanks Joanne for sharing your blog, I’d love to see the second leg of your trip as well.
Hi Connie! The Internet here in Zimbabwe has been either slow or nothing so I’m way behind on my blogging. I hope to post the remainder of our Africa adventure between now and Feb 14th. We had a few awesome moments that I look forward to sharing with everyone. Thanks so much for checking out our blog!
