Hello again everyone! I am finally back from the most incredible vacation of my life… that is if you don’t consider my life here in South Africa a vacation in itself! I went with Nomad Tours through a 10 day trip in Swaziland, Mozambique, and Kruger National Park in South Africa.
There is no way I can ever describe all of the amazing things that happened during this trip, so I will briefly give y’all an overview in this post and then write more detailed accounts of my favorite parts later on.
Below is a map of all of the places I traveled to! If you click on the blue markers it will tell you information about the location.
My favorite part was by far the amount of wildlife and beautiful scenery I was able to see! I saw dozens of animals and drove through many different eco-systems.
The above collage is a very, very small sampling of the animals I saw! In total I saw 27 different species (that I can remember!). I found them not only in Kruger, but every spot we stopped at.
Here is a full list of my animal sightings in order of when I saw them (without repeats):
- white rhino
- nile crocodile
- water buck
- humpback whale
- whale shark
- cape buffalo
- ground hornbill
- spotted hyena
- honey badger
