On Safari With Gert 1 November 2015

1 November 2015

After lunch and check-in with our new arrivals, we set out for a late afternoon drive.

It was a very hot day and by departure time it was still well into the 30's...

Our first sighting for the afternoon was a male White Rhino which was leisurely grazing under a shady tree some distance away. This was a highlight, as Rhino was number 1 on the wish list!

We also found very good general game throughout the afternoon, including a mixed herd of Impala, Zebra and Giraffe. There was a small baby zebra in the herd and we watches it trying to hide behind it's mother, it's long legs the only thing betraying it's presence.

Another highlight of the afternoon was a small breeding herd of elephant. We watched them feeding for some time and could see some youngsters barely visible above the tall grass...


The drive ended with a beautiful Saddle-billed Stork roosting in a dead tree, silhouetted by the sunset!
