2l2a.jpgTeddy Roosevelt identified Africa’s five most dangerous animals to hunt.  On Saturday, August 20, our group saw all five of these animals, three different times, while at Kruger Park.  Most of them walked into the road near our vehicle.  On an evening drive we saw three different leopards.  One got up, yawned, stretched, and walked across the road while we watched.  A male and female lion got up from some rocks, walked through the grass right out into the road then turned around and walked back into the grass.  One elephant was about 20 feet from the car eating.  He was hardly bothered by our presents.  Two rhinos were walking down the road when we came up behind them.  Our encounters with water buffalos were a little less dramatic, but we did see them.  Wow!  What a day!  Here are 11 pictures.  Here are 26 pictures.
