I was in a boat, and this elephant was on the bank, so I wasn't as alarmingly close as this looks!
We were also in a boat when we saw these hippos, running into the water. What a splash! And a cry from Everlasting, 'Don't tread on the baby!' (It's very close to its mum, at the front - in case you can't see it.)
The buffalo, taken just before we decided to turn tail!
Do crocodiles really smile? This chap looks absurdly pleased with himself!
A zebra crossing. It's not my best pic of the zebras, but I couldn't resist the corny joke. Sorry.
This is a fish eagle. Isn't it lovely?? Well, I think it's magnificent - they are huge, and fly low across the water, and I thought they were one of the most exciting things I saw!
At the other end of the bird-size scale, this is a tiny kingfisher.
Brownie points to anyone who knows what this is. It's about an inch or so long (I do know the answer - and never thought I'd actually see one, let alone take its picture!)
