At the end of June my parents and I went holidaying in the Eastern Cape. After spending a few days in PE, we travelled to Addo Elephant Park, a SANParks reserve.
Driving in we spotted a warthog and some of the elephants the camp is known for. This elephant image of mine later won a Shot of the Month competition.
We also had a great sighting of some zebra, frolicking around an artificial water hole – as with the rest of the country, the park hasn’t had rain in months.
At a similar watering hole, we sat at a hide and watched this poor old buffalo take a drink.
On our last night, we decided to brave the cold and go on one of the park’s night drives. And good that we did – we had some amazing sitings! The only lighting I had was the ranger’s flashlight, but I pushed my ISO up to 1600 and managed to make it work.
Looking at the rest of this post, I see it’s all in black and white (unintentionally!). But anyway, here’s a pop of colour; this was the view from my balcony on the morning we left. It consists of several images stitched together in Photoshop.
