Not only the Five!
It is not always the Big Five which provide beautiful and special sightings. This Waterbuck bull was looking at us when we drove towards him on Ndlovu Highway. A rare treat.
We got many different antelope species on Thanda. Next to Waterbuck we have Impala, Wildebeest, Nyala, Kudu, Duiker, Steenbok and Reedbuck on the reserve.
… and a little special Waterbuck info: Waterbuck and Elephant are the only two large mammal species on Thanda which will not allow Oxpeckers to sit on them and feast on their ticks (see yesterday’s post: http://christiansperka.wordpress.com/2012/11/11/oxpeckers-and-buffalotail/)
That is a beautiful shot. I am loving all the photos you are sending to us. Keep up the good work and keep those pictures coming.
You have so much more to see than the big five. Africa is full of amazing things to see. He’s beautiful. With his markings, looks like a target around his rear. Enjoying seeing all the different things in Africa. Have a great day!!
