Kruger Lowveld Sunset

Lowveld SunsetSunset in Kruger is remarkable (to say the least).  We booked a sunset driver from Lower Sabie in Kruger to driver us around the surrounding areas for about 1.5hr on each side of the sunset while spotting animals along the way.  Fortunately we saw several elephant just as the sun was getting low to the horizon and stopped the truck to snap some pics as the sun died.

Later after the sun went down we pulled out the high intensity spotlights and drove through the night looking for eye shine of nearby animals.  Along the way we saw several Hyena and a few interesting birds.  Unfortunately, we didn't find Leopard, which eluded us the whole trip, but we had a great guide and did see some Hippos cross the road right in front of the truck a few times on the way back to camp.
