Today’s evening game drive on Ithala was rather quiet. Besides the usual suspects (Zebra, Wildebeest, Kudu and Warthog) I got some funny images of a female Ostrich and when I got back to my room at the camp a Bushbuck was eyeing me for a while before disappearing into the bush.

Now I am off to dinner after a lot of driving 🙂

New, funny, harassed, well light and rocky!

A good morning drive on Ithala. I encountered …

… a new species (for me :-)): An antelope named Tsessebe, which I have never seen before.

… two Secretary birds with their funny walk across a burned area.

… a Tawny Eagle who was harassed by a Black-shouldered Kite.

… a well light scene at sunrise with Zebra and Wildebeest.

… and an exciting drive on a very rocky 4×4 trail.
