The morning after the night before - very thirsty, I can relate 😆 #Hapoor at #dawn . #sharethebay #Addo #sanparks #easterncape #southafricaza
⠀ ⠀ Wash. Is there anything better than a cool shower on a hot day ?⠀ ⠀ These elephants had the best time spraying themselves with mud and water on this 40 degree day. Sitting in a hot car made me almost jealous of the fun they were having in the water.⠀ .⠀ _______________⠀ A fully grown elephant trunk is able to hold between 8 and 10 of water at a time! Elephants do not drink with their trunks; they suck water up into them and then spray it into their mouths. They also use the water to spray over themselves to cool off.⠀ .⠀ _______________⠀ .⠀ “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” ⠀ John 13:8 NIV⠀ .⠀ _______________⠀ .⠀ #dnkt #dinkietravel #dnktknp2018 #dnktsouthafrica2018#igersofficial #igerssouthafrica #knp #krugernationalpark #krugerpark #visitsouthafrica #tourismsouthafrica #mpumalanga #mpumalangatourism #discovermpumalanga #sanparks #africananimals #africanwildlife #africanwildlifephotograph #krugerexplorer#elephant #elephants
From Bababaddens we hiked up to the lookout point over the Armanshoek Valley. The mountains of southern Namibia can be seen way in the distance. #hike #hiking #richtersveld #richtersveldnationalpark #sanparks #bababaddens #armanshoek #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #splendidview #amazingview #travel #seetheworld
I am not sure which photos to post of the Otter Trail, so I might just insta-spam a whole bunch. Honestly, the trail was an incredible experience. This was sunrise on the fourth day. #ottertrail #tsitsikamma #hiking #southafrica #westerncape #sanparks #adventure #exploresa

CHOOSE - DAY | . . . “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”. . . Never choose the easy road, because more often than not the choices that scare us the most are the ones that will allow us to grow. Hope you had a great Tuesday and that you are choosing to leave a trail. . . . #tuesday #chooseday #krugernationalpark #knp #nkambeninominationoftheday #nkambenisafaricamp #numbi #community #echoafrica #choices #safari #gamedrives #wildlife #southafrica #africa #thisisafrica #travel #tourism #mpumalanga #lowveld #totravelistolive #sanparks #mtpa

Can you name all three birds? Let us know in our story!🦅
For those not in the know, fynbos is a type of vegetation found only in a small area of South Africa. It's known for extreme levels of biodiversity and endemism and therefore gets to be its own floral kingdom, of which there are only 6 in the world. For a sense of the significance of the Cape Floral Kingdom, consider that the US, Canada, Russia, Europe and northern China all fall into a single floral kingdom--the Holarctic. The Cape Floral Kingdom hosts about 9000 plant species, of which around 6000 occur nowhere else. I'm not so good with my plant knowledge, so it was nice to spend some time on the Two Oceans Hiking Trail trying to get to grips with some of the species. Roughly three species down, 8997 to go ;) On assignment for Wild Magazine.⠀ _______________⠀ #agulhas #SouthAfricaZA @meetsouthafrica #visitsouthafrica #capefloralkingdom #plants #sanparks #fynbos

When in the wild you’ve really got to keep your eyes peeled. Wild animals don’t roam the tar roads all day waiting for their photos to be taken by passing tourists. These beautiful animals live out their days as they wish. If they don’t want to be seen they sure no how to keep a low profile.

The collosal move to return Black Rhinos to Zakouma in Chad has so sadly had its setbacks over the last few weeks with 4 of the 6 Black Rhinos having passed due to still unknown causes. The remaining 2 have been moved back to the watchful safety of the bomas. @africanparksnetwork released the full statement with complete transparency and honesty about the loss, an unforseen event that has shattered many people that supported and where part of the intitiative. AfricanParks is a conservation organization that has truly moved the pin on the board for conservation over the last few years across several extremely remote and desperate wilderness areas in Africa. It is indeed a great blow to conservation and projects like this, but the bottom line is that the collective still holds hope and ambition with the safety of the rhinos of paramount importance. Nobody saw this coming, nobody ever thought it would happen, but together we will all learn and keep moving forward with the highest level of respect and compassion for the natural world. I took this image of one of the 6 rhinos in a boma a few minutes after they landed in Zakouma, a day Ill never forget. . . #rhino #conservation #chad #eye #savetherhinos #zakouma #africanparks #sanparks #earthcapture #africanwildlife #wildlife #travelafrica #compassion #africanportraits #portrait #wildlifeplanet

Homecoming. Arriving around sunset at Mopani, we got a spectacular view of the sunset behind the impressive gate. This is the third camp on our Kruger National Park tour and it is very unique in its design and construction.⠀ ⠀ Have you been to Kruger National Park? Do you have a favourite rest camp?⠀ .⠀ _______________⠀ .⠀ Mopani Camp is the newest rest camp (Opened in 1992) in Kruger National Park. Inside Mopani Camp indigenous vegetation has been left largely untouched.⠀ ⠀ The camp takes its name from the mopane trees that are so prevalent on the surrounding plains. ⠀ .⠀ _______________⠀ .⠀ “A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me. ⠀ John 16:32 NIV⠀ .⠀ _______________⠀ .⠀ #dnkt #dinkietravel #dnktknp2018 #dnktsouthafrica2018#igersofficial #igerssouthafrica #knp #krugernationalpark #krugerpark #visitsouthafrica #tourismsouthafrica #mpumalanga #mpumalangatourism #discovermpumalanga #sanparks #africananimals #africanwildlife #africanwildlifephotograph #krugerexplorer #mopanirestcamp #mopani

We found these African wild dogs chilling beside the road in the Lower Sabie section of Kruger. We ended up chasing a safaritruck whose driver obviously was onto a great sighting. So glad we decided to subject our rental sedan to a very bad dirt road to catch these guys! 😉
The strongest bond - what amazed me about the elephants in Kruger NP was not just the size of the individuals. It was also the abundance of elephant herds across the entire park. It gives one an imagination what the african wilderness would look like and how populated it could be without human influence. . . . #elephant #africanelephant #kruger #krugernationalpark #explorekruger #southafrica #MeetSouthAfrica #wonderlustsouthafrica #southafricaza #ThisIsSouthAfrica #sanparks #liveyourwild #conservation #wildlife_shots #wildlife #africanwildlife #ChasingAfrica #instagramsa #wildlifephotography #nature_shooters #enjoynature #naturephotography #exploreandcreate #travelphotography #travel_shotz #nature_shots #nikondeutschland #nikond5600 #nikkor200_500 #mietdeinobjektiv
Meet the sunken ship! I saw that ship when we visited the cape agulhas in South Africa. It was a very stormy place but full of cool things to see. @capetowninfo #capetowninfo #thisissouthafrica #meetsouthafrica #capeagulhas #indianocean #atlanticocean #travelphotography #traveller #teamcanon #weroamabroad #travelvideography #sanparks #photooftheday #canon1dxmarkii #sunkenship #bluesky #adventuretime
Completely unedited, this is the beauty of African sunsets. Something most travellers to our beautiful continent comment is one of their highlights. This photo was taken on our recent photographic roadtrip through the Karoo with a good friend @lancejdaniels. For anyone looking to get off the beaten track there are a host of stunning national parks run by @sanparks - one in particular, this beauty, Camdeboo! #SANParks #Camdeboo #valleyofdesolation #OffTheBeatenTrack #PhotographicSafari #Sunset #Sundowners #Africa
I simply don’t have the words to describe today’s experience ♥️ From witnessing 3 lions stalk and (unsuccessfully) hunt a buffalo herd to spotting and watching the notoriously elusive leopard below the Lubyelubye Bridge 🦁Big 5 count: 5/5 🐾🐘🦏 || I relied on my family to take most of the photos of our sightings today because I was so focused on enjoying the moment 🐾 #KrugerNationalPark #SANParks #Wildlife #Big5 #Nature #Bushveld #BushBaby #KrugerExplorer #MyView #Family #Holiday 🗺🦓🦒
The One-Tusker ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ While driving across one of the open grassland areas in Kruger, we saw a dark grey giant appear on the horizon. We decided to wait for him as he was walking straight towards the road. His wrinkled feet left a faint dust trail behind him as he made his way towards the water. 🐾 🐾 🐾 #captureafrica #monochrome #monochromephotography #bnwphotography #bnw_captures #africa #africanature #africanportraits #wildlife #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_perfection #nature #naturephotography #nature_shooters #earthpix #nature_perfection #earth_shotz #elephant #bigfive #ivory #savetheelephants #abstractphotography #wu_africa #kruger #sanparks #southafrica #krugerthroughmylense #krugerthroughmyeyes
