A new tour started today and the first animal you see on your first ever safari is always a highlight. This time it was a magnificent kudu bull with a massive set of horns. And as if he knew he was a pretty boy, he posed nicely for our first wildlife photos.
Secondly, we saw an enormous elephant bull, right next to the road. He was having a munch of a little bush mixed with some grass. He was already quite old, so very used to the life in the Kruger Park. So he was close to the car and the tourist snapping away with their cameras. It was a great sighting up to when he finished with the bush and walked off in search of another one.
Other interesting sightings: buffalo, impalas, fork-tailed drongo, yellow-billed hornbill, an elephant herd, Speke's hinged tortoise, lilac-breasted rollers, Egyptian geese, hippos (and one guy with very deformed lower jaw teeth), zebras, wildebeests, banded mongoose and a yellow-billed kite.
