Safari Part 4: Not Kruger

On our second of five days in the Kruger area (we were staying in Hazyview), we went on a guided road trip of the local sights. It threatened to storm the entire day, with lightning strike after lightning strike on the horizon. For more safari photos, see Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

The fam at God's Window. You can see why the area is called Hazyview. Below us are the last vestiges of what was once an expansive rainforest. It is now home to South Africa's largest tree farming area. At least there are trees, I guess.

Lisbon Falls. A number of fortune-seekers from Europe and America came to South Africa to farm and to prospect for gold.

The view from the top of Lisbon Falls.

Blyde River Canyon, the third-largest canyon in the world.

The Three Rondavels (which is the Afrikaans term for a traditional round house in South Africa).

Bourke's Luck Potholes, so named because Bourke found gold just sitting in them.

Cat and me at the potholes (Cat, please note that I put in the good picture of you and the weird picture of me).
