This strongly reminded me of the national emblem of Zimbabwe!

In the middle of nowhere we came upon a little oasis in the parched landscape and there was this beautiful Knob Billed Duck all on his lonesome self

Actually they were a mile away but my husband bought himself a new camera for Christmas - one of these Canon Bridge cameras and this thing has an absolute amazing zoom as the following pics illustrate

Philip1, Hilda, Sparrow and NetEk! :thumbs_up:

On the return trip from the eastern section we came across a large group of Banded Mongoose crossing the Den Staat road. There were quite a few very small babies

It was already late afternoon and the light was not great. But it was so cute - when we saw them about half of the group was already across. The rest got spooked by us and stopped in their tracks. Those already across also immediately stopped and waited and even came back to fetch the stragglers. It was only when every member of the group was accounted for that they continued on their journey!

On our previous visit we drove the entire 4x4 eco route. This time around we only had time for a small part of the route in the vicinity of Little Muck, a privately run lodge. We had some really great sightings on this drive!
One of the highlights was a large herd of eland but as usual they started running as soon as they became aware of us.
