Meerkats and Elephants

I have been in Addo withdrawal so we just has to take a jaunt there this morning. We were rewarded by the troop of meerkats, or suricates if you prefer. This is the first time we have seen them there and they were most entertaining scavenging in the grass and checking the area for predators.


And then there were the elephants at Gwarrie Pan. These two juveniles were having fun strolling along the edge of the pan annd stopping for an occassional drink.

Love your elephant photos. Would you mind if I painted the two walking at the waters edge? It is such a good scene.

Sukki we saw the meerkats on the road leading to Domkrag Dam, coming from the Main Camp. They were in the plain on the drivers side. This was the first time we ever saw them
