Mizzbee, I agree. I find Impala quite beautiful. They certainly have survived where many have failed.

Thank you everybody for posting such 8) photo’s and making this such a pleasant thread to visit for a bit of unplanned and “free” travelling :D :thumbs_up: .

Mizzbee the Impalas of the Kruger are my favourite animals. To me they always look so proud and “unruffled” in a non-arrogant way.

A different photographic angle to your Impala picture MM :thumbs_up:

I am also enjoying my "visit and “free” travelling" Grantmissy. I have been a lurker on the forums for many years, preferring just to read what others have had to say and only occasionally making the odd comment. This thread appealed because it provided a way that I could show my photos and sometime impart my views in a short concise manner.

This particular photo appeals to me and I am not sure why. It just seems so surreal, maybe because of the hills in the background. It was taken some years back on the Crocodile River Road, a favourite road of mine. Last time I travelled on this road, it was so badly rutted, it became very unpleasant. They only sighting to break the monotony were Impala

Maybe the other animals knew better.

I do love your pic, Mizzbee. It is, again, so typical of that special mystery.

Trrp :thumbs_up: the ultimate feeling of freedom.

Something that I never cease to enjoy is the Kruger rock formations. They talk of ancient times way before human memory.

Of course, having these two cuties as decoration helps to set the scene.

I do enjoy wide open spaces and love the view from Nkumbe viewsite. You can almost see “forever”

Enjoy your visit to Mooiplaas Grantmissy.

This weekend I will be spending some time at Balule. I am hoping for one of these sun rises

and also wish to share a few giggles with the resident hyena/s.

I agree, Balule is magic. Mizzbee, your sunrise says it all.

Last time I was at Balule was the time I forgot my camera. :wall: :wall: :wall: so no kiekies.

This is of the Olifants taken on a trip many years ago,

You are very welcome Trrrp. Sundowners at six.

Beautiful photographed MM. :clap: A very different expression of a much photographed river.
