A Giraffe’s pattern and colors are best expressed at dusk or dawn.  That is all.

Young Bull elephant

There’s a big difference between seeing and Elepahnt in the Kruger National Park and encountering an Elephant in the Kruger National Park…  Especially when it’s a young bull in hot persuit of a group of females!  I can honestly say, we had an encounter with this guy!  We first spotted him walking through the bush towards the road, he soon had his trunk in the air to find out what we were all about.  The first rules on most of the brochuers is to give these guys their space, especially when they’re in musth.  Their sexual drive can find them getting very angry, very quickly!  We watched this guy get closer and closer to the road and then realized he was coming to cross, exactly where I was parked!  I started my engine and backed up a safe distance for him to cross…  Ofcourse, he decided not to cross but rather follow the road in our direction!  We endedn up backing up for about 2km’s until a tour guide showed up and managed to scare him out of the way!  It was a cool encounter to say the least!
