I am days behind in my blogging but I am doing my best to catch up!
After we left Denilton we traveled on to Krugar National Park. We stayed in yet another adorable lodge and the first bit of advice was, "if you get hot, don't open your doors or windows, cause we have some monkeys that will come in and unpack for you!" We soon saw the monkeys jumping around in the trees and frogs jumping at our feet. The electric fence surrounding our stay was a bit intimidating, but as soon as we went on our night drive and came face to face with lions I saw the necessity in the 6 foot wires.
On our first night in our thatch roof suite, Karli and I were minding our own business when an 8in, black lizard darted against the wall. Luckily, we had created a knock system for animal attacks with our friend Willy who was staying next door!
We woke up in the morning and went on our first all day Safari! We managed to see all of the big five within one day! My favorite was definitely the elephants!
The second day several of our classmates were sick and we had a different guide on our safari and it was not nearly as exciting.
