Nice Eland sighting :thumbs_up:
They are so rare in Kruger, but are easily seen elsewhere.

Nature is a wonderful painter. The picture with the elands shows a very peaceful scene. :)

You certainly had a Hyena feast. I do enjoy watching those animals.

:popcorn:

MM, it really was a hyena feast. Never saw a sitting hyena before. Funny fellows. :wink:

The boring time for the sitting hyena is over. :wink:

Image

Not a very warm welcome :hmz:

Image

The hyena to the right is heading to the water in the reed.

Image

A moment later you can hear the splish 'n splash in the water.
No view to the bathing fellow because of the reed.

Here at the left you can see the result of the bath.

Image

It seems the water has been a bit muddy. :wink:

Before dinner we have a look at the waterhole at the camp again.
There are no animals this evening, but an outstanding sunset. :D
The sky is on fire. :wink:

The little kingfisher joined us.

hilda, watching the hyenas was really great and the sunset was fantastic.
I didn't expect to have such a wonderful end of the last day in Addo.

MM, everybody arriving at the waterhole discovered that there are no animals this evening,
but when they turned to the right and saw this fantastic sunset they were speechless.

Next morning we are at the camp's waterhole again.
There are two warthogs enjoying the fresh green for breakfast.
We are lucky, the little kingfisher appears again.
It's our farewell.

Good bye until next time!
