Welcome back. I am still showing you what I discovered in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Chris is our guide and driver in the part, and Samson is our guide and driver outside the park. Samson got us at our hotel and will return us there tonight. Rhinos are really huge.
Rhinos are endangered because they are poached, or killed illegally. Chris says that if the current rate of rhino poaching continues, Kruger many not have any rhinos in 3-5 years. That would be sad. The rhinos are poached, or killed, for the horn on their nose. These elephants are really close to us.
Mom let me sit on the vehicle to see them. We are really close now. Cape Buffalo are also in Kruger National Park.
So big and their horns are against their head, rather than in the air like animals that live by me. Always something different to see and learn. I love to travel and learn. Another fabulous zebra.
This rhino crossed the road right in front of our vehicle.
So big and so massive. OK, this is what the humans have been looking for.
This lion just finished breakfast and is relaxing and enjoying the shade of this tree. He is majestic! This giraffe is resting also.
Even lounging on the ground, he is very tall. The monkey also wanted a snack.
We saw many large elephants.
This one is also eating. Elephants are vegetarians, so they eat most of the day. Remember the kudu from Chobe Park in Botswana?
Here is another kudu. The twisted horns are very distinctive. We admire those horns. OK, mom said I should put this photo in here. I am not sure. This is droppings from a hyena.
The hyena eats many bones and his droppings are almost all calcium. Chris told us that. The giraffe also wanted a snack.
I love to see giraffes eating leaves. The are so tall and regal. We stopped at the lodge on the river and I enjoyed the view.
There are hippos in that river also. We are heading to the exit of Kruger Park, but look at this.
These elephants by the river could be an advertisement for Kruger Park. And about elephants. You know they are very big and they can do what they want.
There were three large elephants in the middle of the road, stopping traffic from each direction. They are close to us and so much in charge of the situation. We loved watching them before we left the park to go back to our hotel in Maputo, Mozambique. This was my last African safari for this trip, so I, Zeb the Duck, am very happy that we saw so many wonderful wild animals. We hope you go on an African safari. The animals are so majestic. I love safaris.
