Elephants were the early highlight of the day as we were privileged to witness a relaxed breeding heard come down to the waterhole to get a drink. The early light and their imposing presence made their visit all the more special - I always love watching elephants manipulate their trunks in interesting ways and this encounter did not disappoint.
We also got to visit with two of the most "prehistoric" looking creatures of the Klaserie Game Reserve - I'll leave you to decide which is your choice for "Most Prehistoric".
As is always the case on came drives, there is the tension between predators and prey. The tiny steenbok (left) and impala (right) are always on alert and ready to alarm call and flee at a moments notice when any hint of hyena or lions crosses their sensory radar.
