"Nyala are numerous, families of them take their turns coming down to drink. Bulls, face off, strut and prance and posture in a slow motion dance, mohican fur, their bodies and tails puffed up. Ivory tipped horns. They scrape the ground with them. It will take them an age to reach the water like this."


What a treat to see these beautiful antelope up close and performing such elegant moves.


The Fig Forest Walk offers a contrast to the more arduous Primitive Trail.


Love the light thru the trees shots.

We went to Ndumo back in 2004, on our self-drive in South Africa. Everywhere else we self-catered but in Ndumo we booked into Wilderness Safari's camp there, which closed not long after. It was a magical place, the fever trees and sycamores (I think) lent such a distinctive appearance. We loved Nyamithi Pan and the other areas we toured with our guide, I think his name was James Tembe, he went on leave after our visit so we drove him to his home when we left camp, before heading up towards Kruger. We were lucky to see a narina trogon, when a colourful bird landed on a branch just above us (while we were parked looking at something else) and I asked what it was, James laughed and told us, laughed because a specialist bird group had just left, having spent several days looking for that very bird!
