I cannot remember where we saw this peacock.
Bananas growing. A warmer place than Melbourne.
It was an abnormally long truck, so I suppose the sign is appropriate.
We did not partake, but did admire the fountain.
There are a few entrances to Kruger National Park. Our coach entered using the Paul Kruger Gate.
He was once a South African president and was founder of the park.
He is a grim looking figure, for sure.
I did not realise the significance of this monument and so I did not take an overview photo.
Bless the rangers of Kruger Park who can be murdered in their line of duty.
Poisonous, so why have them everywhere at the gateway to Kruger Park?
Blue starling, I think.
They are in pest numbers, but quite an attractive bird.
Look closely and you will see some mischievous visitors on this wonderful old train bridge.
So, through the bus windows, we saw many creatures, great and small. Giraffe.
Rhino. There are no stats published on the number of white rhino in South Africa, as to do so might indicate that poaching is no big issue. So many still get killed by poachers for rhino horn, something that is actually a combination of hair and fingernail material.
Grace? Sami? What bird it this?
Naughty monkeys at our lunch stop.
I don't know this bird either. Perhaps it just a peacock.
The bird that was in the tree, now on the ground.
One very large termite mound.
Kudu, I believe.
I can't remember what this animal was called, but its upper back ruff identifies it.
The giraffe and the zebra did not bother each other, which is how our coach was seen by the animals. Our coach was not a threat and benign, and so accepted as another non threatening creature of the park by the animals.
I really liked the zebras.
I can't remember these animals at all.
A hippo below a bridge.
Elephants love water. They love mucking about in water, and they were.
But just twenty metres away was this log of wood.........or perhaps it isn't.
Here a couple of brief videos I took, zebra crossing.
He seems to be rather more attracted to her than she does to him.
What a wonderful place is Kruger Park.
