The animals

Location: Africa

This was the most exciting of the holiday. We saw all of the big 5.Here are just a selection of the many animals we saw at close range, many within 5 yards, some were in the hotel grounds, some on safaris, some at the roadside. We have not enough space for photos of the numerous birds, some of them rare, many beautifully coloured.

The chameleon on our ranger's head.

The dusk safari at Kruger on the first night, with a female at the side of the road, within 5 yards away, we saw all of the big 5... our ranger said it was rare to have such an exceptional amount of sightings, one one outing. We were very lucky

A herd of wildebeest again in the Kruger

We saw many elephants throughout South Africa on this safari at Kruger, we were surrounded by a herd of twenty coming up from the river. This mother fed her baby alongside us just after this photo was taken. We saw a bull elephant swimming alongside us 10 yards away in the Zambezi in Zamba, it had swum over from Zimbabwe to feed on one of the many islands, a rare sighting for the time of year.

In the Kruger, this pack of hyenas encircled the car, Pete was a couple of yards away

We saw many giraffes, in the game parks and in the hotel grounds in Zambia, this mother suckled her baby in front of us..very elegant creatures.

A very rare sighting of the pack of wild dogs in the Kruger, the pack walked along the road along side the jeep. Many animals use the roads as it's easier for them to walk along than in the bush!

One of the members of the many pods of hippos, this photo was taken in the grounds of the Sabie River Sun Resort, after dark, they wander round the hotel grounds. They were most prolific in the World Heritage Site at the Isimangaliso Wetlands.

The lovely impala herds were everywhere. They had such a beautiful silky coat and were the smallest antelope that we saw apart from the druiker, about 30cms full height that we saw at Knysna

This rhino was by the river side at Kruger with another one, we saw several white and black rhinos.

The penguins at Boulders Beach were a delight. This loving picture was taken after the male had had his wicked Way!! too naughty a photo to publish!!

This particular crocodile was at Isimangaliso Wetlands, by where we got on the boat.
