November 2017. We are still in Tucson, AZ, well, often anyway. We continue our wanderings and enjoying our adventures. We haven't lived outside the US in awhile, but prior to 2010 we lived in: Guatemala, Ecuador, the Netherlands (twice), Germany (twice) and South Africa. We have now traveled to well over 100 countries, but that doesn't mean we plan on stopping any time soon. ... full info
HyenaHyena sighted in early a.m. when walking; also saw a black-backed jackal that day, but he was moving too fast for a photo
Lion, MaleLikely brothers as two unrelated males would not be so simpatico
Lion PrideThere are 5 lions in this photo; we counted 11 but once they laid down in the grass, voilà - they disappeared
Wild DogAfrican Hunting dogs have a matriarchal family system - the Alpha Female is top dog, as it were. Not an easy assignment; she eats last, makes sure all the other family members get their share, etc.
Wild Dogsthe camouflage is amazing - I didn't see the one on the upper right until I looked at the photo
Hippos & CrocodilesThis was a very common pairing - guess that since they both live in the water, they've learned to co-exist. FYI: a group of hippos is called a bloat
Hippos & ElephantsThe huge family dust bath seemed to irritate the resident hippos, who came out to challenge the pachyderms. Yeah, like they care!! I always thought hippos were so big, but not when compared to elephants
BushbuckAlways seen when the light was failing, so this was as good a shot as I could get
Leopard TortoiseFor awhile we thought this was the only "leopard" we were going to see. We saw quite a few, all crossing the road
Susan & StuartOur friends from Seattle who joined us for our Kruger adventures. We had just seen them the month before in Philadelphia for their son's wedding
Rhinoceros We saw 32 white rhino while on our 3-day wilderness trek. We didn't see any of the smaller, but more aggressive black rhino (NOT upset about that), but we did get to examine their dung. I know, jealous, right?
Rhinoceros Not using a telephoto - at times we were closer than I was comfortable with
Rhinoceros I asked Moses if the stories of rhino stamping out fires was true. He said both rhino and elephants have been seen fighting fires in that way.
