On our first morning, waking up in B&Dal, we decided to head north toward Afsaal Picnic area for a breakfast for our very first excursion into the park and found this rather large heard of Kudu just outside Berg & Dal.

Image

Image

Image

We were very glad to see our first rhino and I am not sure for how long we will still be able to be fortunate enough to observe them in the wild!

Image

Image

Then we came across a very 'close' elephant family, huddled together, babies and all!

Image

…...and a very protective mother!

Image

This is all for now folks!

:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Thank you all for "riding along" and helping me with the 'animal spotting' as I negotiate all the highways and byways of KNP and a special welcome to Pumbaa and Surf Cindy and the rest of the 'touring' party!

Next up was our breakfast at Afsaal Picnic area.

Image

Then came all the squirrels, hornbills and other birds to a self invited feast the moment anybody leaves a table unattended.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This kudu with the long horns munching on the green leave tips, was one of many that we saw during our stay in KNP.

Image

Image

“Did I hear the word 'ugly, from someone perhaps?”

Image

More next time!

Fotomaljohan,

Aah what I would not give to be having breakfast at Afsaal today. :dance: :dance: ..even if it means sharing with the feathered friends. :whistle:

I love warthogs...they are never "ugly" for me. :thumbs_up:

:popcorn:

Fotomaljohan - Your photos are stunning, they really capture some of the essence of those places. Makes me ache for them again :) It's been a while since I have visited BnD so I can't wait to read all about it :)
