If you’re in Southern Africa in the autumn (April/May) you’ll be there during the impala rut. And believe me, you’ll find yourself uttering the same phrase I did repeatedly “What on earth was that noise?”
I still don’t understand how a creature like this, can make a sound like that. To hear it for yourself, check out sound number two on this website.
Both in Botswana and South Africa, we heard a lot of noise and commotion, and saw a few different groups of bachelors going crazy, running and jumping and locking horns.
Unfortunately, the guys kind of lose their minds during this time, and throw their normal caution and vigilance to the wind. The result…
During my last trip to South Africa, I was lucky enough to watch lions at night not just once, but on four separate occasions. I have wanted to post these photos for a while; originally I held off as I printed two of them as a gift, and didn’t want to run risk that they would be seen on screen before the prints showed up in person (they looked AMAZING, if I do say so myself). I’ve finally had the chance to work through all the photos I had hoped to edit. A few of them are also on my Smugmug site, links are provided for anyone interested.
While I have been home now almost a week, I thought I would continue on with posting my highlights of each area I visited in Southern Africa, and then move on to other blog post formats. I came home with over 13,300 images, so I will have lots to work through over the next couple of months.
