Driving through the natural habitats of the African parkland in Madikwe, it is wonderful to witness the animals grazing, playing and sleeping from dawn until dusk. I was lucky enough to spend a week on safari, discovering the rich wildlife of this South African conservation Reserve.
Rhinos are under threat from poachers who kill them for their horns, to use in Asian medicines.
Hippos are the deadliest animals in the world, killing more humans than snakes, sharks or crocodiles.
Cape buffalo roam around in herds, showing off their majestic horns.
The wildebeest travel in herds and are often found near waterholes.
The zebras each have a unique set of stripes.The mongoose were very friendly and bravely feed near homes.
The black sable are increasing and roam the grassy plains.
