The photos for this week are again all from South Africa.crocodile_0101

 Our last day included a cruise on Olifants River, but no-one chose to have a swim

In the distance we thought we saw logs floating in the river.

As we drew closer we changed our minds…again no swimming

Previously we had stopped on an evening game drive at this waterhole.  our guide did tell us there was a crocodile in the water and proceeded to set up for sundowners only about twenty feet from the water.  Seeing he claimed Irish heritage, he may have been pulling our collective legs…but I was not going to call his bluff. 🙂

The fish and birds seemed to survive.

Well…the fish didn’t quite survive for much longer.

This waterhole is barely one hundred metres from Sausage tree Safari Camp’s breakfast / dining area.

Many animals came to pose for us here.

We spotted this waterhole while on a game drive.  Once again our guide told us that it was rare to actually see a giraffe drinking as they are most vulnerable when their head is down.  I think this one may have been short-sighted or deaf as it continued its downward movement and took a long drink before whipping its head up in surprise…at noticing us or hearing a noise which we didn’t.
