2020-09-06: Bwindi Highlights

I had the chance to get out for a round of golf when I originally planned to be editing images for this post. Given our lack of summer, and how soon winter will be upon us, any chance to be outside seems to be an opportunity well taken. So these images have been shared before, but are all moments from Bwindi that made me smile.

I hope you enjoy them!

Continuing on with East Africa images; this is a yellow baboon that I spotted on the side of road while driving between Queen Elizabeth National Park and Mweya Lodge near Kyambura Gorge. There were a few other baboons nearby, all foraging in the long grasses, but this one really caught my eye with the posture and turn of the head.

Another month starts tomorrow, let’s all make it a great one.

By this time of the day, this is pretty much how I am feeling. I think it’s time for a bit of a lazy evening.

A mother leopard catches a few zzz’s while her was safely tucked away in the bushes behind her. Viewed while staying at Chitwa Chitwa lodge.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week.

2020-08-16: Panorama Route

This week passed by quickly, mostly with rainy weather, so I didn’t get out with my camera at all. Wanting to have something to share for my usual Sunday post, I opened up my catalogue of unedited images and landscape shots from the Panorama Route in South Africa caught my eye, so that’s what I have to share today.

This was a lovely day trip that we took from our base in White River at the tart of our last trip to South Africa. We decided to have a few down days before heading into the bush, to get over jet lag and relax a bit. This was a great way to spend a relaxing day, learning about the history of the area from our awesome guide while watching beautiful scenery pass us by, interspersed with a few stops with short walks to see the sites.

Initially we were a little concerned as one of our party had limited mobility and couldn’t join in any walks to sights, but the rondavels, and the waterfalls were easily visible right from the car parks. Unfortunately the portholes wasn’t something that could be seen from the vehicle, but we shared images in the evening when back at our hotel. So even if you can’t get out and walk around all the sites, its still a very worthwhile and enjoyable day out.

Wishing you a fantastic week!
