Today we bid our farewells to Cape Town. Our next stop is Nelspruit, gateway to the famous Kruger National Park, located in the northeast corner of the country in the province of Mpumalanga.
Soon we were out in the countryside, headed for the town of Hazyview. Rolling hills backed by a mountain skyline were quilted with crops of avocado, macadamia nut, lemons, bananas, and other fine tropical fruits.
After a brief respite at Perry’s Bridge Hotel, we were off on our afternoon safari, the first of two jaunts into the bush. We had high hopes of spotting the infamous “big five”: lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant. Stay tuned for the results!
