They say that the early bird catch's the worm...I think it's true. Yesterday morning was no exception...

Near the entrance to brighten up my morning.

Image

Just after the Marion B. waterhole. Magnificent.

Image

Back at the waterhole...waiting...and using the time to breakfast (last evening's braai leftovers) and warm coffee.

Image

Then the elephants came and more...

Image

Image

Later back to Hapoor waterhole...and they all come to visit.

Image

Image

Image

At 12H00 back at the Main Camp.

Hi mom, I'm getting tired.

:big_eyes: WOW Peter, nice photos!! That baby elephant is too precious!! How many times do you go on holiday a year, or was this just a quick in and out at Addo? My feet are already starting to itch again, but I'll have to wait my turn until May 09. :cry: Maybe a quick one to Marekele somewhere in between :wink:
