Tuesday morning was still spent at the Pridelands bush camp. We woke up at 5 AM to be hiking through the woods at 6 AM. We took about a 3 hour hike in search of spotting wildlife. We split off into two groups. On the hike, I got the chance to follow wildlife based on following their tracks. I had never followed tracks before, but it was amazing to learn how. I never realized how hard it is to track animals on different terrains. We tracked a giraffe for about 2 hours and never found it, but I could have followed the tracks for another 2 hours. There is so much detail to pay attention to, it is like a mystery and you have to piece together the story. I was very surprised as to how much I actually enjoyed tracking and the attention to detail it takes. We saw many different types of tracks and learned about a lot of animals.
After finishing our morning hike, we got packed for the transfer to Kruger National Park. We didn’t do many activities this day as the drive through Kruger to the Satara camp took most of the day. Kruger National Park is the size of Israel so it seemed as if you could drive through the park for days. It took around 3 hours for us to get to the Satara rest camp from the gate that we entered. I slept pretty good at Satara as we finally had air conditioning again- thank God!
