Kruger Beauty You never know what to expect on a game drive, which we did at 5:30AM and 4:30PM every day for about three hours. A blue headed lizard shows off his colors in hopes of attracting a mate. The male kudu, a species of antelope with the most gorgeous corkscrew horns. The lilac breasted roller is always a showstopper. Mike studying African geography. A rare white lion, with a little pink tint from a recent fresh meal. So I passed Mike the “broccoli” at our dimly lit restaurant. He shook it onto his plate. That’s when we figured out it was a cactus, and Mike had a plate full of dirt! We watched our step to avoid crushing these tiny shark tooth succulents. Tintswalo Safari Lodge was our favorite on this trip. Tasty food, beautifully presented. Never trust a pretty face. This boomslang snake is so venomous that one bite will make you bleed from all orifices until you die. This cookout brunch was much appreciated after our 5:30AM game drive. Acacia thorns are plentiful and wicked to tires. An African safari tradition is “sundowners” or cocktails in the bush at sunset.
