A Taste of Africa, April 2013

The last week was spent with my family on a holiday to South Africa. I will not subject you to a blow by blow account, but will just outline a couple of the highlights.


4 Honorary Rangers took me for a bird walk in Marloth Park, notching up 50 species around the Municipality Offices.


A couple of nights were spent in the Kruger National Park and this Elephant was our first tick on the Big 5 list.

Lake Panic continues to delight. The water surface steamed gently in the early morning and silhouetted an African Anhinga and a Pied Kingfisher.

I will probably try to get three or four posts up, but in the meantime, duty calls and I have to get back to work.
