GROWING UP FAST

Pakamisa’s baby Ostriches are growing up very fast, but they are still very cute ☺️

Recently I was invited to a small game reserve in Northern Kwazulu Natal, called Hlomo Hlomo.

In beautiful morning and evening light I was able to take picture of two species which we do not have on Thanda: Blesbok (the rarer white variety) and Ostriches. I especially enjoyed the magnificent scenery!

I hope you like this picture gallery. For more information about Hlomo Hlomo go to www.hlomohlomo.com

Just a teaser!

I spent Monday and Tuesday on a friend’s Game Reserve. Look out for the stunning images to come …

Looking good!

Well, you can attribute the title of this blog either to me, Badger (the horse I am riding), the Giraffe lady (with her admirer) or the fast growing Ostriches on Pakamisa :-). Have a look at all the images!

I am spending again a few of my off-days relaxing at Pakamisa (in very hot weather!)

A light breakfast with Ostrich :-)

An Ostrich female was grazing on the Pakamisa mountain – just below the restaurant – as I had breakfast this morning. What a view and what a way to start the weekend!

The pictures were taken with my iPhone. I got caught without a camera this morning 🙂

Well protected!

What a surprise when I arrived at Pakamisa Private Game Reserve this afternoon!

These little Ostrich chicks were on a walk-about with their parents when I got to take these pictures.

The Ostrich mom and dad were very alert to ensure that nothing would harm there young ones. I used a long lens and kept my distance 🙂
