During this trip I saw many, many Tsessebes. In fact, I think I may have seen more Tsessebes than Impalas!
While spending time at the waterhole with the elephants, and small herd of Tsessebes arrived for a drink.
They looked really pretty in the golden afternoon light.
I found another herd just north of Mopani. They had a small little calf with them.
I had to wait a little while for the little one to come out in the open, but he finally did.
The little one stayed very close to mom. Then he had a drink before taking a nap.
I still remember the first time I saw a Tsessebe in Kruger. He was very far away, but my excitement was really ridiculous. Every time I saw the Tsessebes I thought of that moment. It sill makes me smile.
These Blue Wildebeest were lying down in the smallest little patches of shade.
When the light catches their coats they are actually pretty.
But their eyes freak me out just a little bit!
The Zebras dazzled as always.
The really are the most photogenic animals. I love photographing them!
There were a few warthogs and giraffes around the area.
One afternoon I drove back to camp via the river loops. I saw this flash of gold on the other side of the river. The sunlight really reflected beautifully off the female Bushbuck’s coat.
