On Safari With Curtis

13 July 2015

A new tour and after entering the park we had time for a short drive before checking in at Nkambeni.

On the drive we saw plenty such as Cape buffalo, Impala, Zebra, kudu, waterbuck, hippo, crocodile and vervet monkey.

Our highlight was a trio of elephant which were busy browsing close to the road. We watched for as long as possible as they ate and ate before time forces us to leave.

A rather cold overcast morning, in fact the whole day was cold and overcast.

Our first highlight was a massive territorial male white rhino we found walking down the road. We followed him down for a few hundred meters until he came to one of his middens, went toilet and proceeded to scrape his back feet in his own business. Then he took his freshly acquired smells and proceeded to walk around his territory.

Our second highlight was the many zebra sighting we had, eventually the sightings got better and better until we had seen plenty of zebras right next to the vehicle.

Also seen were elephants, Cape buffalo, lion, cheetah, Impala, common duiker, kudu, waterbuck, warthog, giraffes, wildebeest, hippo , Vervets and dwarf mongoose.

Birds included African fish eagle, lilac breasted rollers, red created korhaan, grey headed hornbills, created barbets, red billed oxpecker and cape glossy starlings
