Creatures big and small, in groups and solitary in the iconic bush

A morning or day drive in the iconic bush in Kruger National Park is sure to reveal some gems. Keep your eyes peeled as you drive within the 50 km speed limit, or you might miss a sighting or two. We nearly did not see this hyena mom and baby as they both blended so well with the brown and dark earth.

We nearly missed this little  one crossing the road on an overcast, drizzling kind of day. Small and beautiful.

Bhili Sibuyi, is a local, game ranger from Utah village, with more than 20 years of  experience conducting village based tours into the Sabi Sand Game Reserve for tourists and local school children. He uses the shell of a larger tortoise as a sun visor. He says they call him “The tortoise man”. A day game drive with Bhili’s MzsingitanaTransport &Tours Services is sure to guarantee you some interesting sightings in the iconic bush.  Plus, he will share stories about the history of the area.

Be patient and more importantly, be humble here. Creatures rule. Respect for the abundance and beauty of life in the iconic bush is demanded.

A solitaire zebra reminds us of the sharp contrast of its Black and White stripes. How can we forget?

What about the little blue bird? It blends in well with the green shrubbery and the grey, light blue clouds.
