On safari With Curtis 5 March 2015

5 March 2015
We left camp nice and early this morning, giving us the opportunity to watch a beautiful sun coming up over the Kruger horizon.
Although the morning soon hotted up and this had an impact on sightings we still had a nice drive.
Our first highlight was down at the dam where we found a hippo lying in the shallows watching as two rhino lay down enjoying the early morning sun.
Our second highlight was at a hyena den. When we arrived we could just spot one hyena but then more and more appeared and we eventually had seen nine of them including a couple who were right next to the road.
Other animals of interest were elephants, buffalo, crocodile, giraffe, waterbuck, kudu, impala, common duiker, baboons and a dung beetle rolling his ball.
Birds seen included woolly necked storks, yellow-billed hornbills, lilac breasted rollers, bataleurs, jacanas and a goliath heron to name just a few.
This evening it was time for the sunset drive where plenty of general game was seen.
