In the early morning, this elephant extended its trunk toward us, to better sniff us.
We saw two Burchell’s zebras nursing. Found in southern Africa, Burchell’s zebras have a light gray stripe between the black stripes on their flanks.
And a baby giraffe.
Look at the closeup below to see a wound and scab on the left rear leg, and a bird hidden behind the tail.
A yellow-billed stork perched on a termite mound.
A female kudu.
At the end of the day, we headed back to camp early because we weren’t seeing much.
During heavy rain, low spots in the dirt roads fill with water. The game warden in the photo below tried to drive through the puddle and got stuck. He’s getting his bag from his truck before we give him a ride to the warden office. The next day our camp crew got his truck out. Dirt roads can become impassable in the wet season.
