South Africa, this trip was to be “easy”, no real planning, no expectations other than a relaxing safari enjoying whatever came our way. Our only previous African safari had us a couple of nights in t

We felt very lucky to have seen a “trio of felines” on our first couple of days in the Klaserie, but Mother Nature is no “one trick Pony”, our first drive from Motswari Timbavati and Chad had us parke

No safari would be complete without Elephants, we all love them, loyal, funny, fearsome. The grim statistics of poaching worries us all, whilst at the other end of things, soaring numbers in some Park

Of course, how short sighted of me. It is a baseball team: the Chicago Cubs. They have a bear cub for their mascot. I was so shocked that the David Bowie song came on right as I was typing about David Bowie that I failed to explain about the Cubs!

 

@@elefromoz might also have been perplexed without the explanation, so thank you for the opportunity to clarify the coincidence. I have not heard of a team called the Wild Dogs, but that would be a nice mascot.

@@pomkiwi,

@@elefromoz Nice to catch up with the wild dogs (unless you are a steenbok). I have heard a baby rhino squeaking (although not as young as yours I think) - this was in the Sabi Sands when mum and baby were standing in a waterhole - it was impossible for the youngster to feed without diving under the surface.

Oh that is funny, but just not fair

 

@@Atravelynn, David Bowies "Golden years", you see, you see, Divine intervention, must be all true. Spooky nevertheless.

 

@@michael-ibk, @@deano, Yep, Rhino before dinner and Dogs before breakfast....too lucky. And a Dog carrying around a Steenbok head, none of my friends could possibly understand how "special" that was.

 

@@dlo, crushed by your Bee Gees comment, don't judge a book by its cover -_-

Love the hyenas on the last page, especially the one open-jawed head sticking out of the ground, but I'm really blown away by the photos of the termites and their predators.

Some spas charge extra for those kind of mud baths.

A lovely sighting of the baby rhino (and mother!). And how good of the wild dogs to show up on your last drive!
