Last week South African National Parks released a touching little picture of 46 African penguins taking a few tentative webbed steps into the sea. They had been rescued, underweight and dehydrated, and sent to penguin sanctuaries to be fattened up a little.
The Sabi Sand Reserve, adjacent to Kruger National Park, is world famous for its game—especially the Big 5. But it’s also home to some of South Africa’s finest private game lodges. Lion Sands is one of these.
Madikwe Game Reserve in North West province is rapidly becoming one of South Africa’s top safari destinations. The Big 5 are all here, but it may also maybe your best opportunity to see the elusive ‘painted wolves’ of Africa – the highly endangered wild dog.
This week I have a guest blogger, a great wildlife and nature photographer by the name of Morkel Erasmus. He shared some of his recent images with us, as well as some words about his experiences and his favourite national parks and game reserves in South Africa.
