On our last evening we decided to see what the Rhino walk was all about. The route is clearly marked with Rhino-footprints. :) A nice little touch.
I cannot contemplate any human being stupid enough to feed a wild animal. Not just in the Kruger, but any wild animals. It is a very stupid and irresponsible thing to do. BUT unfortunately believe it or not it happens every single day!
When we reached the end of the trail we decided to backtrack back to the tent staying close to the fence in stead of cutting across the middle of camp. What an excellent decision that turned out to be. Guess what waited for us at the waters edge....
The Rhino's immediately stopped drinking and fled. Running at full speed for the cover of the bush. At first I was very angry at these people but then I focused on the rhino's. These huge creatures running at full speed is quite a sight. It sounded like a steam train. They were huffing and puffing to safety in a cloud of dust. One of them ran over a small tree without breaking stride. A M A Z I N G!
