My afternoon “commute”

Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Africa, Namibia | Comments Off on My afternoon “commute”

Saw these four giraffes on Okambara last week as I was driving back from checking the box traps…they were pretty non-plussed by my arrival and just went on eating. Giraffes are so photogenic!!! (They also happen to stand still a bit better than, say, oryx!)   (If the video does not come through in your email you can click HERE to see it on...

Giraffe on Okambara (this post is for Carolyn)

Posted by on Sep 18, 2013 in Africa, Namibia | 1 comment

Here are a few images of giraffes on Okambara. Some I can get pretty close to, and others I only can view from far away.

The juveniles are the most fun to watch as they try and figure out just how scared of you they should be.              ...

Picture is taken at the water hole at the Bush Camp on Okambara Elephant Lodge....

This morning I told Vera that I would check the box traps at Frankposten and Bergposten…so I made my tea, climbed into the Landcruiser, and took off across the farm.

Now why don’t I post pictures of everything I saw? Well, I did get pics of the sable and...
