iSimangaliso day & nightJanuary 12, 2018 in South Africa ⋅ 🌙 22 °C
We did two safaris at the iSimangaliso Wetland Reserve. The first was from morning to afternoon and, in addition to crossing some animals' ways in the park, also brought us to Cape Vidal with its beautiful beach. After a bit of swimming and tanning we had lunch at the picnic site, watched by lots of vervet and samango monkeys.
In the evening, we were picked up again for a night safari. While due to the heat at daytime it had been rather quiet today, the night-active animals were less elusive. We saw loads of grazing hippos and antillopes (red bucks and waterbucks), as well as gnus (wilderbeast). However, we also had encounters with rare animals like a bushpig and a genet (a “small“ cat).
I can only upload the night pictures once I get them from the good camera, but till then at least I have some of the day safari ;);Read more
