Spiral horns in soft light!

Nyalas are some of my favorite antelopes. I took this picture of a young male on Thanda Safari in the most beautiful evening light.

Having fun!

A baby White Rhino had a lot of fun, when its mum decided to have a mud bath in between a herd of Cape Buffalo. My guests enjoyed this very special sighting just as then sun had set this evening!

World Rhino Day 2021

Today is World Rhino Day, to raise awareness of the importance of Rhinos conservation. This is a picture of my favorite species: The Black Rhino @thandasafari. Have a good 🦏 day!

On a mission …

In this picture one of Thanda Safari’s male Lions was tracking some females using his sense of smell.

The morning after I took this image he had caught up with the ladies, who were ‘hanging out’ with the dominate male, my photo model’s brother.

He therefore kept a respectful distance to the pride to avoid any conflicts.

Just cute …

Annoying Birds

Sometimes the little birds are just too much!

This Impala shook off the Red-billed Oxpeckers which where looking for ticks in its pelt.

Possessive

These two were mating for a while now (as Lions do every 20-30 min for a few days). And the male’s brother is always nearby, but in a respectful distance to the mating couple.

Yesterday afternoon I observed the scene for a few hours and realized that the female was trying to get closer to the second – non mating – brother, but got pushed off by her possessive mate as soon as she tried to move into the submissive brothers direction.

Lion family life live!
