Favourite drinking spot

With all the perennial streams on Mountainlands Nature Reserve, the game can drink water anywhere they like. But some places seem to be favourite gathering places – perhaps the water tastes better there or it is a matter of convenience – only the animals will know. The following photos show some of the animals that quenched their thirst at such a spot where a trap camera was left for two weeks.

A sounder of warthogs.

A beautiful kudu bull visited during the night.

The kudu bull seems to horn the mud, which may be a territorial display.

An implausibility of blue wildebeest. I kid you not – that is what a group of wildebeest are sometimes called.

A female kudu with her calf.

Publicity shy eland.

A zeal of zebras.
