EcoTraining: Photos of the week #2

Every photo has a story to tell and every week the story will have a different ending. In nature not one day is the same which makes life in the bush a thrilling experience.

A walk in the bush

“There is something right about seeing animals on foot rather than from the great fuming hide of a vehicle. Here we are all animals with needs for water and shelter, at a respectful and proper distance. Here one is excited by tracks of animals one doesn’t see or by working out how the lions killed the eland carcass we come across”.

After a camp visit to three of our four wilderness camps, we walked away with a renewed love for nature and its inhabitants and it left us in awe of the beautiful African bush.
