Hi there NetEk and Hilda! :thumbs_up:

This was another elephant a couple of days later - touches the sign post as if to say "Hello my beautiful scratch-post!"

Appreciate the replies Pumbaa, barryels and Philip1! :thumbs_up:

We have not seen Roan for a very long time and was really hoping to spot some but that was not to be. :(
On one of our visits to Thihongoyeni we did spot a single Eland, but it was far in the distance.

However - we had an awesome sighting of another very special antelope there......Lichtenstein's Hartebeest! :dance:

It was seemingly part of a herd of Tsessebe

Were we correct in assuming that this was the Lichtenstein's calf?

Sheenaugh-Lee, Barry and Hilda and MM! :thumbs_up:

We also paid a visit to Mantambeni Hide - unfortunately it was really busy! Had some nice bird sightings though!

View towards the low-water bridge
