Kruger NP Skukuza Campground to Phabeni Gate 41 KM 25 Miles March 21, 2011

Monday we spent driving around the park on several roads and saw a hyena, several elephants and even a dead one with a lioness sitting near. Somebody said the lioness was injured probably true since it didn't look like there was much meat left on that elephant. I was not going to step out and ask if she needed help.

We continued driving and saw zebras, giraffes and wildebeest but unfortunately no leopards.

Reluctantly we drove to the Phabeni gate where we saw the remnants of an old farm which was separated from the park by a fence and animal grate so it was safe to get out and walk around it.
