So true! We stopped to admire a herd of impala once and 5min later a pack of Wild Dogs ran out the bushes and proceeded to kill one in front of the vehicle.

If we hadn’t stopped for the impala, we never would have seen the Wild Dogs

Amazing how often something like that will happen. Instead of moving around searching for things, nature just seems to bring it to you if you have the patience to sit, wait and enjoy the bush. Thanks for your comment.

This is the truest lesson of them all. Too often you hear of people who are only looking for the big 5 and forget the smaller things in the bush that all add to the magic. My humbling experience in the bush has made me look at these photo’s – and despite my inexplicable love for leopards – I find myself admiring the silver grey silver grey bark and the thinning canopy of imparipinnate leaves of the Marula tree. Thanks for an amazing read!

I can see you have been brushing up on your tree knowledge Penny – Imparipinnate is probably the longest word we’ve ever seen on this blog! I know what you mean though, there is beauty in everything, it is for you to discover and appreciate it. Thanks for your thoughts. Rich

Haha, I suprised even myself this year when I discovered just how exciting the tress of the Lowveld can be. I am hooked! (If we were talking about a Buffalo Thorn, Probably literally hahaha). I think a blog dedicated to the trees that keep the Lowveld system so perfectly running is on the cards?

Definitely worth a mention and looking at. I would like to see a leopard in all of those trees however 😉
