Lilac-breasted rollers in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
An ostrich couple out for a stroll. Trivia: Ostrich eyes are bigger than their brains.
OK, so it's only an African Green Pigeon, but clean and fashionably draped, unlike its 'flying rat' city cousins. Photo Johann du Preez.

Drive-Yourself-Wild: Car rentals can be made at airports, Nelspruit town or even Skukuza camp. Most Kruger roads are in good shape so 4WD is not necessary. Gas stations inside the park do not accept credit cards. SatNav is an asset.
With a maximum speed limit on tarred roads of 50kph and 40 kph on dirt time required to drive between camps is between 1-2 hours in the southern sector.
It is not permitted to get out of your car outside a rest camp. Gates to Kruger Park and rest camps close at more-or-less sunset (about 6pm) and open at about sunrise (5-6am).
