This Water Monitor Lizard was enjoying the sun at Thanda’s largest waterhole. These intelligent reptiles are very shy and usually disappear quickly into water or high grass as soon as one approaches.

To the delight of the Thanda guests this specimen had a “trusting day” and stuck around for a lengthily photo session 🙂
