Love the birds!

Although the feature is called “The Week in Pictures”, and beautiful photos they are, I enjoy the accompanying narrative just as much.

Very complex ventilation system for the elephant.
It is totally amazing when an elephant is so close to the vehicle. Before my first visit, I had never thought of them as graceful.

Super photos, the sandpiper, elephant calf, hoopoe and lion chasing impala would all go on my wall as would the Nkoveni female.

Sean and James, cracking photos

It was amazing to see how relaxed the elephant was, up close and personal with the vehicle.

Thoroughly enjoyed TWIP! It’s just the send off I had looked forward to as I fly out tomorrow, arriving Johannesburg some 33 hours later. Cameras and lenses are packed in their suitcase anticipating a lot of activity… perhaps Nkoveni will bring her cubs out for a viewing!! Lovely image of the African Hoopoe.

So lovely to see two rhino bulls resting on the sand. Loved the tiny ele calf too gorgeous for words. Hopefully we will see the leopard cubs soon. The hoopoe is such a beautiful bird, one of my favourite birds. Beautiful foto of the elephant spraying dust on themself for prevention of flies and the sun. Good foto’s thanks James.

James would you be so kind and tell us how many toes does an african elephant have on their front foot, and how many toes on the back foot. Thanks James.

Great selection of photos this week James! Do you happen to know the sex ratio of the Ntsevu pride sub-adults by chance? I’ve seen conflicting numbers elsewhere.
