Photographer's Note

This picture was taken late afternoon as we were entering the beautiful Mkuze Game Reserve in the northern part of Kwazulu Natal.
This reserve differs from others in the vicinity in that it is flat with grasslands, fossil pans, wetlands and sand dunes. Attractions include game-viewing, birdwatching and an exciting bushveld trail.
It is a place of great beauty and high contrasts and Mkhuze is renowned as a mecca for bird lovers with more than 420 bird species on record.
The reserve has an astonishing diversity of natural habitats, from the eastern slopes of the Lebombo mountains along its eastern boundary, to broad stretches of acacia savannah, swamps and a variety of woodlands and riverine forest. A rare type of sand forest also occurs in the reserve.
This diversity of habitats means a wide variety of animal species including black and white rhinoceros, elephant, giraffe, nyala, blue wildebeest, warthog, eland, hippo, impala, kudu and other smaller antelope. Rare species occurring in the reserve are cheetah, hyaena, suni and leopard.
