In going down into the deep southwestern grasslands in search of the Birmingham Male, we encounter such a spectacular scene of sheer abundance. Zebra dazzles by the dozens, elephants, more impala than we can count, a fair few wildebeest and a large herd of about 400 buffalo all in the same area. So we halt our search for the Birmingham Male and just enjoy the scene that surrounds us. On our way out we enjoy some time with a large buffalo bull as he thoroughly enjoys his mud bath, completely caking himself in thick dark mud.
We then lend a hand to a few other rangers in the search of the Three Rivers Female and her cub, only to make use of a few trustworthy alarm calls from some monkey in the tops of the trees nearby. The Three Rivers Female and her cub amble their way down the Maxabene Riverbed, climbing a few trees and exploring on their way. Our sighting ends when they bump into what we believe to be the Maxim’s Male in some very thick vegetation.
Enjoy our Virtual Safari…

Thank you so much, Valmai. It was a stunning scene with all that wildlife in one area.
