What a lovely episode Pumbaa and Timon! The Carmine Bee-eaters are so beautiful! Great shot of that one! And the cutest young Grey Hornbill! :clap: :clap:

Stunning pictures of Shibotwana! So sad that his one tusk is missing! What a beautiful Elephant bull! :dance: :dance:

Awesome Waterbuck ladies too! And more luck, an awesome Cheetah sighting, long grass or not! :clap: :clap:

great pics of the waterbucks, Pumbaa. :clap: :clap:

I think they are so beautiful with their "long hair".

fantastic sighting of the cheetahs. :thumbs_up: Could this be the same ones we saw between Nkaya pan and Sweni? We saw only four though.

That tusker seems to be very relaxed.

Just amazing birdies, Pumbaa :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Beautiful sighting of the ellie and will definitely look out for some of these tuckers next time. :cam:
Hippos and waterbuck always attract the attention which are worthy of capturing the moments.

The Cheetah is an amazing sighting. The camera focus is always a challenge even if one tries to switch to manual to get better subject focus. You got some great shots here and thank you for sharing. :clap: :clap: :clap:
