May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie

Last night I saw my first Bushbucks as they came into camp. It was already getting dark and they must have made it in just before the gate closed.  I only got a picture of 1 of them as they settled down to sleep.   This morning it was time to pack up and move… Continue reading May 13 – Crocodile Bridge to Lower Sabie

May 10 – Pretoriuskop to Crocodile Bridge

After the fog wore off this morning, it turned out to be another beautiful day and it was time to pack up and head for Crocodile Bridge.

Some Canada Geese must have received word… Continue reading Are They Real?

I found deer!  🙂 At this point we heard a group (a very noisy group) of school kids… Continue reading Fort Whyte Alive – February 5

Fort Whyte – Buffalo, Geese, Duck

Continuing with more of the critters from yesterday’s trip to Fort Whyte Alive, I’ve got pictures of Buffalo, Canada Geese and a Mallard Duck to show you. While I was standing and talking to the people who had the deer following them yesterday, we saw a large flock of Canada Geese flying over us.  I… Continue reading Fort Whyte – Buffalo, Geese, Duck
