Phalaborwa Mines

Day after visiting the Kruger Park we went to see the mines near the town. The weather was not very nice but at least it created an interesting scene. I have the before and after version here as well to show what I did with the photo in post-processing.

The Elephant in Kruger Park

South Africa without safari is not South Africa. We hired a car and spent the entire day driving around the small part of the park. We were looking for living creatures and I have to admit we were quite lucky. We saw many giraffes, elephants, zebras, antelopes, buffaloes and some other animals. We didn’t see any cats though. This is one of the many elephants we saw that day.
