We had a great day trip through the park yesterday. A highlight for me was getting close up to some Steenbok - the first time I've seen them in the park.

I really loved your photography and the pics of the kudu bulls. :clap:

Thank you for sharing. We were there in Jun'13, and a really lovely park - a bit :mrgreen: that you live so close, but always a great place to visit. :thumbs_up:

This is youngest little ellie we have seen in Addo. The little one was only 1 week old when I took this photo near Harvey's loop/Nglulube loop intersection on the 3 January.

PJL, Joubie... :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: thank you.

PJL, your Steenbokkie picture is just beautiful. The gentleness of the grass frames a delicate little beauty to perfection.
