This morning I had my favorite Buffalo sighting, ever! My guests enjoyed this energetic Bull Fight – African Style. I was able to shoot many good images and this short video clip with one of my favorite tunes from the overture of George Bizet’s opera Carmen as soundtrack.
After a day in the office I decided to spend an hour before sunset at Mgankla dam. It was very quiet at the waterhole so I decided to listen to an audio book. After about 30 minutes all by myself I heard a slight rumble. It was the start of a large herd of Cape Buffalo arriving for evening drinks.
This is my favorite picture from this evening taken with my iPhone.
Late this afternoon I passed a small waterhole just as this old Cape Buffalo Bull turned around and came a bit closer to give me a good look. I had my iPhone on eye level with this impressive creature to get this special perspective shot 😊
PS: Please do not try this yourself unless you know how to interpret the buffalo’s moods.
When we were returning to Thanda Safari’s Villa iZulu on a very windy afternoon we had to pass a large herd of Cape Buffalo. This is a short ‘drive by eye level video’ I took on that occasion with my iPhone 😊
