Trails and Rifles!

Well, the first part of my Trails Guiding Course is over. The picture below shows me dressed for the part and carrying a large caliber rifle (a pre-requisite for a trails guide).

Below are a few picture that I took at my last day at the Sabi Sands Game Reserve. (Waterbuck, Kudu and Dwarf Mongoose).


Have a good week!

Sunrise, Kudu and Plover

I had a great weekend. Saturday evening and Sunday morning I drove guests at the Lodge. With Dumi as Tracker we had two very good drives with sightings of Lions, Elephants, White Rhinos, Buffalo and Cheetahs. The guest were very pleased with the guiding and the tracking 🙂

We also viewed a beautiful sunrise (picture 1) and enjoyed a relaxed Kudu cow posing for the camera (picture 2). This afternoon I spent three hours just sitting by one of the waterholes by myself. As it was a very windy day there were no mammals, but I got some good bird shots. One of them was a Three-banded Plover (picture 3).



Have a great week.
