Animal Magic

Our first game drive in the ‘mosi-o-tunya’ park, a small reserve next to Victoria Falls, which turned out to be a successful start to our animal spotting…

Baboon, bison, buffalo, crocodile, elephant, fevet monkeys, giraffe, hippopotamus, impala, warthog, white rhino, wilder beast, zebra and the pet cat from the resort!

But by far the most moving experience was the early morning boat trip back at the lodge. The guide Chris and myself 10 meters off shore in a canoe watching an elephant on the banks of the river and over the next 10 minutes a family group of 30 elephants padded out of the bush to join it, drinking at the waters edge.

An amazing sight to see the bulls guarding on the outer edge of the group, the females along the waters edge watching for crocs whilst the babies drank from the river.

I’m grinning like a Cheshire cat!
