Just shy of 1300 photos today. Yesterday’s post had 57 photos by my count. We really never know what we will see when we head out in the morning.
I know Linda took this photo of the floor of our tent for reason. I don’t have a clue what it was, but if I didn’t post it I just might get in trouble. Cautious Bob.
As seen around Elephant Valley Camp where we are staying.
Heading out for the day. Elephant camp is close enough to civilization that we have electric power 24 hours and really good internet.
Even elephants can be hard to spot in the bush.
Saying hi. It’s actually smelling us.
One minute you are in thick brush and a short time later it changes to this.
Happy impala. Note the tail.
Impalas sharpen their horns by rubbing their horns in the sandy soil.
A hippo doesn’t need a lot of water to be happy.
Another mudhole and more happy hippos.
Two for one.
Different view of the dead elephant that is only skin and bones.
You can’t see me!
Shady Impala nursery.
Out from the nursery, in different directions, stand does watching for possible predators.
Rock Monitor lizard.
A “raft” of hippos.
Elephants have “grazed” the plants in the foreground.
A small sectio9n of the trucks waiting for the ferry across the river. They can wait up to two weeks to cross. A bridge is being built, but things move very slowly in more than just a few ways in Africa.
There’s one in every group.
2001: A Space Odyssey wannabe?
I really like this photo.
And so the sun sets on our last day to be in the bush. Tomorrow we are flying to Cape Town and the start of the post trip. We never imagined the bush would be as totally awesome as it was. There will definitely be a return trip to other places in Africa in our future.
