Marakele - A few pictures from a day visit

I left Pretoria early one Saturday morning and picked up a friend and her mom in Hartbeespoort near Brits and on we go for the day to Marakele.

And a few more – Amorous Rhinos this time.
There were about 7 of them in the road. One of the males decided that my car poses a threat and I had to get away quite fast……on a road with thick, loose sand.

Fantastic rhino pics and it has been such a long time since I saw a dassie!

What was your overall impression of this park it is not somewhere we have been (yet). :-)
