Re: 2023 – My Year of Travel – Because being 50 is Fabulous - PART 5

Wow, a stunning, colourful carpet of flowers. So beautiful even in the mist :dance: :dance:
Shame you can't enjoy it all year round. Suppose it gets rather busy when the flowers are in bloom?

Re: The Most Dumbest Spotter Ever ;-)

What a great morning walk, even finding a hyena :dance: :dance:
Believe it or not, but we have never seen a carmine bee- eater or a european roller in the park yet. So it would certainly make our day!

Re: Not On the Trail in Kruger - 2023

You encountered some 'massive' roadblocks this time. Love watching the big herds of buffalo. Being engulfed by a herd of ellies...not so keen on that :shock: That does look like a large herd of zebra. It is a very private moment so don't blame the honeymoon couple deciding to disappear in the bushes...

Now that is a really good tip. Thanks :thumbs_up: Should we make it to the park another time, I will certainly keep that in mind!

Lots of great birds and smaller animals while you waited for the cats to show up. 8)
