Kruger National Park photodiary

Kruger National Park photodiary

It is deadline week, so it is with wistful memories of more relaxed times that I look at these photos from my weekend away in the Kruger National Park. The Boyfriend and I were lucky to see some amazing things and spend some much needed time together without a TV or any other mind-numbing entertainment.

One of the things I really do love about living in Gauteng again is this closeness to the bush, compared to the strange (albeit beautiful) lushness of the Cape from a winter of perpetual rain.
