I didn't know baboons like the sausage tree fruits until I saw one of them eating one.

This was taken during the Cricket@Skukuza 2016. The morning before the final match, we pulled up next to Sparrow's car and had prime view of the mating couple right in front of us.

Roaneric, thank you for these lovely videos.

The darter really does look very reptilian. It is quite amazing what they can swallow.

:lol: :lol: :lol: at the baboon mommy and little one.

The recent flooding in January

The sunset dam was overflowing, but by the time I got there the pump already did a huge job and the water level was lower
