A special day in Germany, celebrating my dad’s birthday. Three days with many lunches and dinners joining family and friend, and two short visits to a small zoo near Lucerne and a wild game park near my former home town of Zofingen in Switzerland.
Today’s pictures are of a Nile Crocodile and of a Hippo on Lake St.Lucia. They were both giving me a “sharp look”. I was glad that I was not in the water. These pictures were taken from a boat.
Well, this will be the last post for a little while. I will be in Pretoria for two days and then I am off to the Sabi Sands for another week of trails guiding contact sessions (with Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Buffalo and Rhinos :-)).
If I have internet connection I will keep you updated during this time. If not, you will hear from me again on 23 March!
Yesterday I spent a few hours at Mkuze Game Reserve. My main aim was to get some good bird pictures. The day was not as productive as a Winter’s day at Mkuze but I got some images of Pelicans, Bee-eaters, a Sparrowhawk, an Ibis and a small Crocodile. Not bad for a hot morning!
Especially during the Winter month Mkuze is one of the best birding places in Kwazulu Natal. It is only 45 minutes from Thanda and always worth-while an excursion.
