Before I left on my latest trip in late August, I managed to publish a gallery of bird photos from my most recent South Africa adventure. That was the first of three galleries from the trip. Normally I limit myself to two galleries per trip, but this one produced so many images (bolstered by the fact that Jenn also took photos, and did a great job of it!) that it required three. This is the second gallery, featuring general wildlife and scenery from the Greater Kruger area and the Kalahari Desert. The third will feature big cats.
Of course, when I say “general” wildlife, that makes it sound a bit plain. But in reality it was anything but normal. In fact, this was a great trip for odd, elusive, or downright rare mammals. You know, the stuff I absolutely love to find. In part it was designed that way. Our visit to Tswalu Kalahari, for example, has been in the works for years, primary in hopes of finding some of Africa’s most elusive critters. And we achieved that goal there, but there were many other surprises along the way.
You can jump straight to the full gallery of photos. Here’s a short preview of some of the highlights.
And now we get into some of the smaller species that really got me excited…
