The animals of Kruger National Park in South Africa

A few weeks ago ( 28th May blog) I visited Snipe Dale country park and nature reserve in Lincolnshire which has a stone showing that is on the Greenwich meridian.

Sarah has sent in some pictures from a nature reserve she visited. Its co-ordinates, which you can see on Google Maps are 24°0′41″S 31°29′7″E.

It is the Kruger National Park in South Africa and here are Sarah’s first batch of pictures.

Spotted hyena – This is Sarah’s favorite animal it was living in a pipe under the road. The pipes are there to help drain away the water in the rainy seasons.
