This morning Samson picked us up really early. We are driving to Kruger National Park in South Africa for the day. Driving, the sun came up and we reached the border between Mozambique and South Africa.
We cleared immigration to leave Mozambique and then cleared immigration to go into South Africa. Minutes later we enter Kruger National Park.
This is our safari vehicle.
I am ready to find big animals. As you know, I, Zeb the Duck, have been on safaris so I know that I stay in my traveling bag or sit on the vehicle seat most of the time. Our first animals are impalas.
Chris, our guide, says there are more than 150,000 impalas in Kruger Park. That is a lot! These hippos know we are here.
They are watching us. Guinea Fowl or Guinea Hens are rather plentiful and they have a beautiful blue neck and head.
This is a brown snake-eagle.
Glad he wants to eat brown snakes, and not yellow ducks. I love zebras. Look at this one.
I believe this is a Burchel Zebra. They crossed the road directly in front of our safari vehicle.
I love to see big animals this close. Chris showed us this owl.
He sure has big eyes. This bird with a bright red neck caught my eye.
We love birds, but I prefer big animals on safari. Here is a warthog.
Warthogs are rather plentiful also, but I, Zeb the Duck, love to watch them.
They eat a lot and often. The top tusks are not very sharp, but the bottom tusks are very sharp. Don’t you just adore giraffes?
Mom and I really like to see them. This is an animal we have not seen yet.
Chris says this is a Blue Wildebeest. He also calls it a gnu. We are seeing so many animals and I want to show them all to you, so I will finish this next time. We don’t want these posts to get too long. Remember, next time, more big animals.
