My search for the Otter continues as the creature in question continues to elude me and the camera trap, despite having seen tracks close by. However, while no snaps of the otter in the past few weeks, the camera trap has managed to capture some of the most interesting elephant moments we have seen thus far, as well as the first lions caught on camera! Having placed it at a low angle over-looking water, it has also caught a fair number of birds who have also wandered by, capturing some fantastic candid moments as they look, with interest, into the camera.
I hope you all enjoy the selection below!

A male bushbuck saunters past just after 2am in the morning which goes to show that even animals considered to be diurnal still do move about at night.
A Hamerkop is narrowly missed but just makes it into the corner of the frame.
A juvenile Saddle-billed Stork. With an estimate of only 50-100 pairs left in South Africa, this is a very exciting find.
A Black Stork unexpectedly peers into the lens.
Hippos nightly activities continue to be captured.
A Wooly0necked Stork edges into the frame.
Another local stork listed as near-threatened in South Africa, the Wooly-necked Stork.
A journey of giraffe make their way across the river…
…one pauses for a drink along the way.
A splash of water flicks past the lens as an elephant walks through the water.
A exceptionally large herd of elephant move through the Sand River.
Finally! The first lion caught on the camera trap.
A pride lies up in the early hours of the morning.
A very full-bellied young male lion follows the rest of the pride east downstream.
A day later, tracker Life Sibuyi follows the lion tracks.
Follow on two days, and another lioness is captured, also making her way east.
An interesting angle of a feeding elephant.
One can clearly see how important a trunk is to an elephant’s feeding activities!
Two bulls are captured in head and tusk lock.
I really enjoyed the movement and form of this shot.

Andrea has an energy that is hard to match. It's difficult to find anything in the bush that she doesn't get excited about, whether it's the molluscs in the Sand River, setting up camera traps all over the show to try and capture ...
