5:00 a.m. - Rise and shine! This is before sunrise, well before sunrise! But of course you want to be at Crocodile Bridge with they open the park. This is one of the times when the animals are most active. They also run out of tickets, and then you can't go into the park! So we all rolled out of bed when Andre knocked. The kids slept in their clothes. Everyone pretended to eat a little cereal and then it was off!
We traveled in style in Land Rovers custom built for the adventure. The view was good and it was best not to think too hard about hungry lions.
Our guides, Andre and Andrew, were very knowledgeable, as well as being quite proficient at making elaborate meals at the picnic sites!
We did have a couple of equipment failures: Day 2 shortly after an entirely too close encounter with a male elephant in must we got a flat tire. Then Day 3 we lost the same tire again!!! Luckily Andrew's mom, Pat, swept in and saved the day and we got to pump her for good embarrassing stories about Andrew!

Our safaris ended each night after a beautiful African sunset, and were followed up by a lovely dinner at our outdoor living space!
