I just love mother and child pictures. They always brighten my day. These are a few from my latest trip.

A one day old Nyala with its mother. It was born in the picnic site the previous day. Although mom was hiding her infant in the bushes, she did allow us a brief look.

Image

I love baboons and can watch them for hours. I wish I could have managed a better picture of this typical toddler, but mom was very protective.

Image

A caring Hyena mama, close to Shingwetzi. It was only when I got home that I realised that mama had a big ugly wound on her buttocks. She was very gentle and loving with these little cubs who no doubt added to her pain at times.

Image

Zebras are always photogenic, but babies even more so. A mother and child picture close to Pafuri picnic site.
