March 19, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

There really is nothing more beautiful and entertaining as watching newborn 'bush babies' find their feet in the African bushveld. From sunrise to sunset here are a few highlights from my recent trips to the Mountain Zebra National Park, Addo Elephant National Park, and Kragga Kamma Game Park  in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
