The lappet-faced vulture (Photographed in Kruger national Park, SA: Jul 2016)or Nubian vulture is an Old World vulture, that are found in the Old World, i.e. the continents of Europe, Asia and Africa. The lappet-faced vulture is a huge species, ranking as the longest and largest winged vulture in its range behind the closely related cinereous vulture (see earlier post where I posted cinereous vulture picture from Gujarat, India). Overall, the lappet-faced vulture is blackish above with a strongly contrasting white thigh feathers. The black feathers on the back of African vultures are lined with brown, while Arabian birds are dark brown rather than black above. The underside can range from pure white to buff-brown. Like many vultures, it has a bald head. The head coloration can range from reddish in southern Africa to dull pink in more northern Africa to pink on the back of the head and gray on the front in the Arabian Peninsula. This species is patchily distributed through much of Africa, though it is absent from much of the central and western parts of the continent and declining elsewhere in its range.

This bird has the same name in English and Afrikaans. Named after the sound of its call. Really a beautiful bird with a nice midday catch!

Most active at night when temperatures are cooler, lions are often observed resting and sleeping in the shade during the daytime.

Dust Bath โ€ข

Elephants often use their trunks to spray themselves with dust, which provides protection from the sun. We found these elephants dust bathing at Mala Mala. It was such fun to try and photograph them because I had to time it so that I took photos just as the elephant sprayed the dirt. โ€ข

This image has a story to it. (I don't usually post long anecdotes so bear with me).
We were out on a drive in Serengeti last year around about this time. We spotted lion cubs (about 2 years old, so not babies necessarily) that were lazing in the sun. Closer in, we saw a male lion that seemed to also be basking in the sun.
As we moved closer, it came to our realisation that this male lion wasn't just lying down but had also been injured.
The pain seemed so evident in his eyes, and on noticing us he moved in between the bushes. In this photo, I caught him staring directly at the camera. It always catches at my heart - because it was a moment where I saw that even the King of the Jungle was hurt.

The Cape griffon or Cape vulture, also known as Kolbe's vulture (Photographed in Kruger National Park, South Africa; Jul 2016), is an Old World vulture. It is endemic to southern Africa, and is found mainly in South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana and in some parts of northern Namibia. It nests on cliffs and lays one egg per year. Since 2015, it has been classified as Endangered. This large vulture is of a creamy-buff colour, with contrasting dark flight- and tail-feathers. The adult is paler than the juvenile, and its underwing coverts can appear almost white at a distance. The head and neck are near-naked. The bill is dark.

Rothschild's giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi)
Great place to see it: Lake Nakuru, Kenya, Africa

https://www.toehold.in/phototours/kenya/

In Lake Nakuru National Park, if you crane your neck trying to fathom how a four-legged mammal can be that tall, remember that we share the same wonder. Because Rothschild's giraffe deserves every bit of that admiration.

The Rothschild's giraffe inhabits savannahs, grasslands and open woodlands. It's easy to recognise this subspecies because of the colour of its coat. Its orange-brown patches are sharp and less jagged. The males are larger than the females. This suave mammal is endangered, with only 1671 individuals in the wild as estimated in 2016.

Another distinguishing feature of this giraffe is that there are no markings on its lower leg. This makes it look like it's always wearing white stockings. Nature's sense of fashion has probably manifested in the simple yet sophisticated being that the Rothschild's giraffe is!

Unlike the Masai giraffe and the reticulated giraffe, this one is born with five ossicones on the head. Two are the obvious ones at the top โ€“ common to all giraffes. The third is in the centre of its forehead. The other two are behind each ear. For all these amazing reasons, the Rothschild's giraffe is our Animal of the Week!

See this gorgeous giraffe on our next 'Harvest in the Savannah' Wildlife Photography Tour to Kenya!

The hooded vulture (Kruger National Park, South Africa, Jul 2016) is an Old World vulture. Native to sub-Saharan Africa, this vulture is a scruffy-looking, relatively smaller in size with dark brown plumage, a long thin bill, bare crown, face and fore-neck, and a downy nape and hind-neck. #bird #birdwatching #vulture #hoodedvulture #africanvulture #africanwildlife #wildlifeofafrica #kingsbirds #wildlife #wildlifeofinstagram #nuts_about_birds #instabirds #africansafari #krugernationalpark #southafrica #myafricanwildlife #kings_birds #kings_birds_

๐ŸŽถ Brothers in arms...๐ŸŽถ
These two young male lions left their pride on their own terms after instincts start to kick in and they become keen to establish their own territory. For now they will hunt and stay together, but the day will come that these brothers become enemies... #1natureshot #africa #capturethewild #forthewild #ok_animals #magestic_wildlife_ #africanimals #total_shot #picturetokeep_nature #picturetokeep_birds_animals #pocket_family #pocket_allnature #pocket_wildlife #pocket_lions #total_animals #wildlifeofafrica #featured_wildlife #animals_magic #loves_africa #batpixs_nature #bns_animals #photo_pond

Okavango Sunset โ€ข

While staying at Third Bridge Camp, in the Okavango Delta, we went on a mokoro trip, as well as a boat ride through the delta.
โ€ข
A mokoro is a slim boat, like a canoe, except instead of paddles, it is pushed along by a pole. A person stands at the back of the boat and uses this long wooden pole to push the ground and move the mokoro along. It is popular in the Delta because the water is relatively shallow, so the poles can easily reach the ground. On our mokoro trip, we saw birds, hippos and fish, but luckily no crocodiles! ๐ŸŠ โ€ข

Right after the mokoro trip, we raced back to go on a boat ride to watch the sun set. This time, we were driven around on a motorised boat. We saw elephants, hippos, crocodiles and loads of birds. We travelled along the narrow channels that lead into larger bodies of water, where the hippos liked to congregate. On one such lake, we stopped to have sundowners. The ripples from the boat made for an incredible reflection! โ€ข
