We visited Addo on Feb 12th. It was a scorcher! 43°C. (I noticed Night Owl also mentioned it elsewhere). I felt so sorry for the animals. They were all trying to hide under the smallest of bushes. I've never seen an ostrich's wings hang.

Addo now has a lovely thatched verandah at the restaurant. While we were sitting there ±13:00 having lunch a tour group, more elderly people, just arrived back from a day trip. There faces were flushed from sunburn, while they held there hats trying to protect there faces. They all made a dash for the restaurant. I don't think they will ever forget the African sun.

Here are some photos of which you'll be able to see how the animals seeked relief from the sun.

Thanks for pointing that out. We always get confused with the english names as we call them mofhartebees & basterhartbees in afrikaans (lichties & tsessebe).
