Bored out of my mind at work, so I thought that I would share these pics from last year's trip to KwaZulu. There's always something interesting to look at on safari!
This first shot shows a home-made hyaena trap. This species is protected, but my host had a special permit to control them, as he seemed to have an awful lot on his patch. Every night, we could hear them yipping and howling near our lodge at sundown.
The second picture shows the remains of a Model T Ford, rusting in the bush. How it got to Africa and what happened to the owner is a mystery.
Finally, a vulture feeding station. Vultures need bone fragments to make their egg shells hard but in a managed landscape like South Africa, fallen stock is quickly cleared away. The landowner therefore dumps animal remains here as a conservation measure.
