On a winter visit we were fortunate to see this bushpig early one morning. They normally hide away quite quickly when the cars enter the park :wink:

We were in the park just the other day and there are literally thousands of Brown-Veined Whites fluttering around. Every moist dung pile (water + minerals) was attracting them:

It was also a privilege to see Valli Moosa with his splendid tusks :D

What lovely sightings and pictures. 8) I have never seen a bush pig, so I am intrigued by the little critter... as for the Caracal, how beautiful is that. :thumbs_up:

More, please.

:popcorn:

I have only ever had one short visit to Addo. I hope to change that.

We had some love elephant sightings. The Addo ellies seemed more gentle to me than the Kruger ellies. I don't know if that was just my perception.

This is my favorite photo of my Addo experience.
