Wildlife: Keeping watch

11th July 2013
While the rest of the herd drank from the lagoon behind him, this buffalo bull kept a wary eye on us to make sure we didn't approach too close. By this time of year, when water sources are drying up, we find large herds of buffalo (sometimes more than 1500) searching for grazing opportunities.

Taking refuge in a large herd offers protection from predators but makes getting enough to eat much harder!
