From my Selati Lodge game drives...

Could I classify the back of Lee's head as a sighting?  

Luckily this bull Kudu solved that question for me. 

Up close and personal.
I think that this Rhino could do with a pedicure.
It was lying across the road and would NOT get up. 

We found a group not to far away that WERE up,
and were keen to find out who we were. 

A Red-billed Oxpecker catching a lift. 


Spring colours are out... 

Natal Spurfowl. 

It seems to me that Giraffe sightings are very popular with international guests.

Together with Zebra, they have added themselves to the Big 5 list   

This .458 is standard for all the rangers...

If they get their vehicle stuck,
they get this pink rifle bag...
to keep until the next ranger gets stuck.
I am told that in winter it is very difficult to get rid of it.
In summer, the bag can change hands almost daily.
Lee, at Selati, is the current recipient. 

A rather large male warthog  

The Spanish couple on "my" vehicle battled to remember the name of this antelope. is a WATERBUCK. 

This old buffalo bull would not get up.

Wildebeest at the waterhole in front of the lodge 

This young White Rhino calf was most inquisitive. 

An interesting sighting.
A Steenbuck out in the open 

Till the next time.
