Go! Camp & Drive - - Letter - AN­SIE MEYER Pre­to­ria

We vis­ited the Kruger Na­tional Park re­cently where we stayed in one of Lower Sa­bie’s bun­ga­lows. One day we drove past the Ntan­dany­athi hide on our way to Croc­o­dile Bridge. Here we saw a pe­cu­liar thing: A few blue wilde­beest stand­ing to­gether on the river­bank, look­ing rest­less. I then spot­ted a croc­o­dile in the wa­ter. One of the wilde­beest walked into the wa­ter. Meanwhile, I’m watch­ing events through my Canon 650D with a 55-250 mm lens. As the wilde­beest started to jump, I be­gan tak­ing pic­tures, and I man­aged to cap­ture the an­i­mal’s brav­ery on quite a few shots. I’m not an ex­pert pho­tog­ra­pher; I just take pic­tures for fun. But it’s not ev­ery day that you get to see a wilde­beest sur­vive a sit­u­a­tion like that – and man­age to cap­ture it on film!
