We moved into the hide, with plenty of space and on the right hand corner we could see in front and to the side.

Some big kit was set up, pointing at the Goliath Heron and it sounded like a machine gun the way it shot continiously.

Lots of birds around...two pods of Hippo...and an Egyption Goose that was making a lot of noise.

Soon the hide filled up.

A visitor asked if there were any Malachites around....I replied no. When we left SO asked me what a Malachite was :redface: I explained, the King Fisher that was on the stamp....

The Goliath Heron was in centre stage...prime position....Splash...action.... :dance: :dance: :dance:

Pit stop in Sukuza and we proceeded on to the Sabie river high way....

The idea was to turn right...but there was a herd of ellies to the left.
So turned left then realised that this was a huge breeding herd....

SO's pics of a tiny one...
