SATURDAY CRITTERS - RHINOCESES at Kruger National Park

I am restarting my South Africa series  (yesterday - Rhino at dusk) and if you remember last time we saw the Elephants just before entering Kruger National Park.  Now my friends Martin, Marie and I are inside Kruger moving around 5 different lodges and today you can see we came across these Rhinoceses.  The photographs are not brilliant because as you can see there was a bush in the way when they went  to the waterhole but we were still excited to see them.  


Yesterday's post shows them coming out of the water into another water hole at dusk and fits into the meme for reflections.  CLICK HERE if you missed it.














 I have a short video and if it does not appear below, CLICK HERE.

  3. Lovely photos. Rhinos are such characters.
    So sad about them being killed by poachers in the wild for their tusks.
    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  5. They are magnificent, I saw some on the news last week dangling from helicopters. The sound was off so I don't know what it was all about but I expect it was something to do with poachers.

  9. The images were brilliant, Margaret. The rhino is now endangered in South Africa due to poaching of the horn.

  11. What an amazing trip you had Margaret.. That's the one thing I regret about my time in Africa, that I didn't go on safari! Too late now I'm afraid. I always enjoy your safari shots and videos.
