South Africa ~ Wednesday 25th November ~ Sabi Sands Evening Safari

Because the day was reasonably clear we ventured back up the mountains to admire the view from Gods Window. We also visited the Pinnacle and Wonder view. Its about 45 minute drive from Hazyview via Graskop.

Then we were collected from our lodge for a evening safari at Sabi Sands private game reserve. Sabi Sands borders Kruger.
But, I’ve never seen such a stormy sky – amazing colour, the photos don’t do it justice.

We were hoping to see lots of active wild life at dusk but unfortunately we saw mostly a very active and spectacular thunder storm.

Yes driving around in an open top vehicle was getting a little scary.
I tried really hard to get some lightening in this photo but it wasn’t cooperating. 

So we retreated to the lodge for drinks – Sundowners as its called in South Africa

We did see a hyena spooked by the storm – below is a fuzzy pic of it’s hind legs!

Dinner was at the Umkumbe Safari Lodge.
This pics from their web site as it was too dark and wet for photos.

Last Day tomorrow.
