On Safari With Karen: 10 February 2015

10 February 2015

As a new tour started today, our first highlight was the first animal we saw: an elephant bull eating marulas. We were barely 5 minutes in the park and there he was standing as if waiting for us. The first animal you see is always exciting, that it was this magnificent bull made it even better.

Our second highlight was at Nyamundwa Dam. While we were watching three hippos climbed on the shores to start grazing. All the while a baby hippo was playing pretending to be a dolphin in the shallow waters next to its mum. A great sighting.

We also saw a fish eagle, a buffalo mud wallowing, our first herd of impalas, Egyptian geese, a rare saddle-billed stork, a grey heron and white-breasted cormorants here.


Other interesting sightings: herd of buffalos, zebras, blue wildebeest, magnificent kudu bulls, kudu females, a steenbok, a warthog, Dideric's cuckoo and more elephants.
