Photo of the Week
Something a little different this week for our Photo of the Week. These lovely images were taken at Kariega Game Reserve recently by Africa Geographic blogger, Christian Boix. Although Winter is fast approaching it seems that there are still some gorgeous blooms to be found on the game park.
Kariega Game Reserve was very lucky to recently have a wonderful wildlife sighting of the rarely seen Cape clawlass otter which was spotted and photographed on the Bushman's River, here in the Eastern Cape. It proved to be a very special sighting for the game park with a total of five otters captured on camera both in and out of the river. Usually these water-dwelling mammals are extremely elusive and when spotted, they are most often alone.
At Kariega Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape, safari guests are often lucky enough to see a herd of hippo in the river, their heads poking our of the water as they stand in the cool river. Hippo spend most of their days resting in the water, leaving only at night to feed at their preferred grassy locations...
