So today we set out with an incredibly excited American group of 10 with an age group ranging from 7 to 77!!
Special locations including superb Elephant herds with tiny calves, Buffalo herds ranging from 5 to 100! Numerous W.Rhino sightings with a solid total of 9 for the day for this much discussed Mammal. A highly active Spotted Hyena den with pups so small they hardly could balance to some just gradually developing their spots to 6 fully developed adults who were extremely vocal!!!!
Vast amounts of Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Bushbuck, Warthog, Impala ,Waterbuck, Hippo and Wildebeest were also sighted!!!
The bird kingdom was out in abundance with the highlight here being 3 Southern ground Hornbills walking next to us fully vocalizing for 500 meters!!
However as a group we decided that the Black Rhino bull sighting in the late afternoon was today's and the trips highlight!!!
Not impressed that we had spotted him in some thick bush, he gradually approached us with a aggressive stance and continuous scent marking !!
At one stage this critically endangered African mammal was 50 meters from us for brilliant photographic opportunities!!!
We left the Park with a passionate and happy group who now realize they need more time in this incredible Park🐯!!!
Safe travels to Matt and his crew back to the state of Texas USA!!!
