Me...hard at work.
THIS is the part of my "job" I love the most...
In the bush, with a camera!
I just LOVE the expression on the face of this young hippo
These two giraffe walked through this waterhole,
just to get to the other side...
Perhaps they thought they were chickens?
Once Sable roamed Gauteng in such vast numbers that they were shot,
not for trophies, but as meat for the farm workers
It was such a nice afternoon that even this Burchell's Coucal was taking a stroll.
They are also known as the "Rain bird", but this one did not live up to that name.
Dinner time back at the camp.
Barbecue was on the menu...
or as we here in Africa call it...
Thanks to Lara for this "back-of-head" shot.
Our final evening meal together.
What a wonderful experience.
My first "safari" was as a thirteen year old in 1966.
This visit to Machaba Camp with the Leopard ID Project
has to be the highlight of the past 47 years.
Many thanks to all involved.
