Some additional Africa Adventure



"Gonarezhou" means "The Place of Elephants"

and that is what it truly is.

The elephants of Gonarezhou are not necessarily a friendly bunch.
They built a defensive wall, clearly intending to tell us: 
"Stay away, if you know what's good for you."



The haze in these images is sand, whirled up by these stomping beauties.


More Out Of Africa


Probably as good an image of  a Leopard at rest
as you'll ever get.


Two "Crested Cranes" getting to know each other.


Two "White Fronted Bee Eaters, already well acquainted.


This "Ele" told us in no uncertain terms
that she wanted no part of us.

A Sea-battle


Two Crocs, one submerged, have a little argument.


The Hippo settles this dispute, due to its size.

by spreading them in the sun.

The "Yellow-billed Hornbill

What a beautiful, but noisy bird this is. 
I regret that I do not have a sound track on this Blog.
Here are a couple of those birds..





Surely you did not expect to see a daytime shot of a Leopard or a Lion ?
Not on the first day!

Got it fixed


Of course, I could have brightened this pix.
But then, it would not have been the way we actually saw this cat.
There will be several more, daylight shots in the near future.


He sits there like a little house kitty.
Hed is, however, a most efficient hunter and killer.
