The biggest, the tallest, the cutest, the rarest …

… here at Vuyani, you really see the entire range of what African wildlife has to offer. I always tell people: If the biggest, the tallest, the heaviest and the prettiest animals don’t impress you, then NOTHING ever will. It is truly incredible to see animals before you that weigh as much as lorries, and animals that tower, literally, over you and make you feel like the tiniest creature on earth. It’s probably a but like Jurassic Park, that sort of emotion. It’s a thrilling one too, and this one is REAL!

July of course is the first proper month of the “dry season” and as a result, lakes are starting to hold somewhat less water, and the bush is a lot less lush. Visibility increases and so this makes for amazing photos. But bear in mind: the mornings and evenings are usually quite cool, so pack for warm weather with strong sun during daytime, and chilly temperatures if the sun isn’t out.

Here a few photos we took over the last few days: Gives you an excellent idea!
