Wild dogs in the boma. We were allowed inside to get better pictures. Hippo's on the bank of Ruighoek Dam A beautiful cheetah, simply walking along the road early in the morning.
We had a beautiful, good look while he checked us over for a possible breakfast Low cloud over Mankwe Dam We were able to identify this young bull for Ben, his name is Rookie and he has a deep v shape on his other ear. As elephants grow they tear the edges of their ears giving an easy method of identification
White rhino cow and calf. The calf is about 3 months old Howzit mama. Rhino have their ears clipped for identification. Each v-shaped clip is a number and the total gives that rhino's id. The Pilanesberg Centre..........still in business after a fire destroyed the building
What is left of the building that is a national monument All the wooden bits - window frames, floors, roof beams and doors were incinerated   The hippo capture team and boma at    Batlhako Dam
