Giraffe drinking - they look so awkward!

Blue wildebeest

White rhino - only the 2nd one I've seen in the wild

Wildlife wasn't quite as concentrated as it was in Kruger, but we definitely saw some awesome stuff. I really got into the birds here because my 2nd independent project was a bird biodiversity survey. I spent 5 mornings out in the field looking and listening for as many birds as possible. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot.
