Great thread revival!

Here are some that we have encountered:

Giraffe on the S28

Big fella on the S79


Image
Hyena close to den on the H6


Image
Juvenile Bateleur on the H1-2 close to Skukuza


Image
That same Bateleur

Rhinos on the side of the road somewhere in Kruger :naughty:

One of our favourite roadblocks ever! Pregnant Cheetah on the S107 walking towards us.

Between Orpen and Satara. 30 dogs! They were comfortable running between cars, until a park bus and outside jeep jockey pushed their way through and sent the dogs off the road.

You always get that 1 person that must drive straight over a roadblock and spoil it for everyone else :rtm:

Thank you all for your comments :thumbs_up:
The lions and the Elephant both played cool and ignored each other until the last moment. Then the Ellie turned right and the lions kept lying on the bridge and not one of them looked into the direction of the grey giant :o
The lions belong to the Vurhami pride, they are lying on the Vurhami bridge and in the background you can see the roadsign into the S28.
