Elephant Attacks a car in the Pilansberg National Park on the 22nd Febuary 2011

Below are some photos taken while one of the large elephants in the Pilansberg National Park known as "Amarula" took out a car he was walking past while in musth. This is when an elephant releases a sexual pheromone and in this state is highly aggravated.




















This is why it is always advisable to go on a safari with a professional safari company with guides and rangers that are qualified to get you around the national Park in a safe manner, as they know what signs to look for when moving in amongst the animals found in the parks.

Some Photos taken at Mona Pools (Zimbabwe) of the gentle giants coming to visit while on safari.
























Above are some photos taken in Mona Pools (Zimbabwe) of elephants getting close to guests that were on safari. Even when one is trying to have a midday rest, they want to see what is going on. Great fun having these gentle giants coming to visit.

Kruger Park Safari with Suzanne and Mr and Mrs Goeke 9 - 12 October 2010

After picking up all our guests in Johannesburg, we made our way through the traffic and out of Johannesburg on route for Nelspruit and the Kruger National Park. After a good stop a long the way it was off again to Nelspruit. The group arrived in the park around 12h30 were we transferred them to Pretoriuskop camp, there home for the next 3 days. 

After checking in to there accommodation and meeting their guide Mark, it was time for having lunch after which it was off on the groups first game drive. Guests had good sightings of rhino, Elephant, buffalo and numerous plainsgame species during the drive. At 17h30 it was back to camp for relaxation, a good meal and all guests wanting to watch the match that was getting broadcast on television.

The following morning, it was up early to enjoy a cup of tea and coffee before departing on the game drive at 06h00. Guests had a good day aboard our open safari vehicles getting good sightings of most of the inhabitants of the park.

The evening was spent enjoying a well deserved meal in the camp restaurant, before it was off to bed before another early start to the next day.

The following days took on the same itinerary as the previous one with many good animals been seen on the routes taken.

Feedback from the guests was that they had a wonderful time, saw lots of animals and got some really good photos. They are thinking of returning next year for a longer safari to the Kruger National Park
