Satara Summer – Day 24 (2019/12/28)

In contrast with yesterday, today’s weather at Satara in the Kruger National Park was much cooler, very windy and overcast. The animals and birds appreciated the respite from the heat as much as we did, and put on a glorious show!

    Hello Dries,
    I have been “following” this trip with great pleasure. So happy you and family are experiencing some wonderful moments at Kruger. I imagine Joubert is making some pretty amazing photos too? 🙂

    While a few days early, my husband and I wish you and your family a blessed new year. Thank you for your warm support for my photography this year. Looking forward to sharing and learning more about your beautiful country in 2020.

    Best wishes,
    Takami

      Great question, John! There are two species of wildebeest (aka gnu), the Black and the Blue. The Black Wildebeest occurs naturally only in South Africa, while the Blue also occurs in central and east africa. There are several races of the Blue Wildebeest that all look slightly different and go by a few unique names, like Cookson’s Wildebeest, Nyassa Wildebeest and White-bearded Gnu.
