Africa

 

If all goes well I will have just taken off for a birdwatching and wildlife watching trip to Africa next week. Hopefully I will get a fair number of photographs. Photographs from my hard disc only appear as thumbnails so I will cut and paste images from the net.

 

Back

 

I am back. Saw some great natural sights. I accidentally left my camera in someone's car in South Africa on the way back. This doesn't matter since this forum does not host full size photographs from my hard disc. I hope to obtain the camera soon. I will in the meantime post similar images from the net.

Illness

 

Subsequent to my last post on this thread I was hospitalised for the first time in my life with a terrible form of malaria. I am limping back to health and hopefully will bring you images of my trip.

Incidentally there are only 1000 mountain gorillas left on the planet. All of them distributed in the Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.

Silverbacks

 

Silverbacks are the dominant males that lead the family. They have white/silver hair on their backs. They need to consume 25 kg of vegetation every day. They weigh over 200 kg.

The giraffe is a great spectacle. I had never before seen them in their own natural environment.

Tree Climbing  Lions

 

We saw four lionesses on a tree in the Ishasha sector of the Queen Elizabeth Park in Uganda. Tree climbing is an adaptation for lions.
