As  the light rain cools the area, the visitors continue with their Intercultural Exchange with Big 5 flavour Susquehanna University day 6, as the walk the streets, the board-walk, and the beach area in St Lucia.

Fortunately, the rain clears, in time for the group to enjoy the Hippo & Croc cruise;

If you have missed Day 9

Intercultural Exchange with Big 5 flavour Day 10 starts with a drive through Hlane with the Game guide,  where lions are a guarantee.

Or, rather, the day starts with a sprained ankle that would impact on the rest of the day.

Simunye clinic does not have bandages or pain killers, so the next three hours is spent on the phone, and Internet to find nearest a medical center.

The Doctor on emergency duty in Komatiepoort,  is both a shock and enlightenment, with regard to a Doctor with poor bedside manners,  or rather, no bed side manners.

Our afternoon drive from Crocodile Bridge to Skukuza, is aborted, and we use the national  roads to access the KNP at the Kruger Gate , only just making it in on time, and then, delayed registration, and arrival in the dark, and supper, all part of the Experience.

And on the drive back to Skukuza

Then a sunset drive, evening braai, and we end our Skukuza visit with an early morning game drive with Taste of Africa, where lion is viewed by the group.

Skukuza is enjoyed by all:
