[South Africa Series Nr 2] *swipe to see more pictures! One of the highlights of the trip is we got to join a 5-day safari tour in Kruger National Park and Sabi Sand Game Reserve. Within the first 3 days we saw all the big 5s (Lion, Elephants, leopards, Rhinos, Buffaloes) + cheetah, zebra and extremely endangered wild dogs! The viewing of the big5s really depends on lucks. We were extremely lucky to have seen them all in the beginning as the final 2 days were quiet and disappointing for the others who joined in later. Due to the extreme drought South Africa is experiencing these years, lots of rivers were completely dried up. It was pretty sad to see only small streams of water left in the middle of most river beds. It did however hinder the amount of mosquitoes in the area and we were thankful for that.
