Only the eyes and nostrils break the waterline. The crocodile moves barely disturbing the water.
As a youngster I remember seeing old black and white movies on Saturday afternoon television. Aside from all the World War II dramas, Johnny Weissmuller playing Tarzan were the movies I most remember. A required scene in all those Africa adventure movies were the crocodiles splashing into the water. What better way to show the dangers of the bush. While Hollywood usually stretches artistic license to the limit, the Nile Crocodile is indeed one of the most dangerous animals on the continent.

I’ll admit to not being much of a bird watcher. I don’t generally look for them but once in a while one will catch my attention. On our trip to South Africa we couldn’t help but notice hundreds of different species.

Our latest travels took us to South Africa with the intention of getting some wildlife photographs. Although I’m fairly well travelled, this was the first time I’ve been on the African continent and I was looking forward to the trip. Our schedule included time at the private game farms of Ukutula and Shambala, as well as a visit to the Pilanesberg National Park and Game Reserve.
