During our stay at TAU Game Lodge we had the opportunity to experience african wildlife in all its beauty. Thanks to the skills of Darren, our ranger, we saw spectacular animals, such as african wilddogs or lions. But we also came close to the more understated beauty of different antelopes, birds, giraffes and elephants and embraced the tranquility of the african bush during winter.
A proud male Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) tracks us during a stop, while his 2 girls watch us from the protection of some shrubs.
Not far away a female Steenbok (Raphicerus campestris) lies down in the shadow of a tree. These small antelopes typically live solitary and try to hide in the vegetation. When they try to escape they frequently look back, just like this particular one.
From a bush nearby a group of Grey Go-away-birds (Corythaixoides concolor) track our steps and warn everybody in the area of the intruders.
An Impala ((Aepyceros melampus) halts to watch.
