White Rhino on the Charge

White Rhino on the charge, Kruger National Park, South Africa This White Rhino, taking a dislike to our vehicle after we’d stopped to take photographs, suddenly put its head down and charged us.

We were in the Kruger National Park and had stopped to photograph a family of three rhino on the side of the road.

Fortunately this was a mock-charge as the massive animal pulled up about two meters from our vehicle. The photo below was the last in a sequence of five shots. I was shooting our the back window and by this stage the exterior rear-view mirror was partially in the way. I was also fast losing interest in taking pictures!

My buddy Kevin, who was in the driver’s seat, was obviously less concerned than I was as he didn’t even try starting the vehicle. He’s been going to Kruger for many years and clearly knows a bit more about animal behavior than I do.

For more pictures from our trip to Kruger, please see Kruger Park Photos, Nov 2012. And for more about the White or Square-Lipped Rhino (Ceratotherium simum), see Rhino Information.

Nelson Mandela Sculpture

Sculpture of Nelson Mandela by artist Marco CianfanelliThis sculpture of Nelson Mandela, comprising 50 laser-cut steel columns, is the focal point of the recently opened Nelson Mandela Capture Site near Howick in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

The remarkable sculpture, by artist Marco Cianfanelli, commemorates the 50th anniversary of Mandela’s capture by apartheid security police in August 1962 on a stretch of road near the small town of Howick. Following his capture, Mandela spent the next 27 years behind bars as Prisoner 46664.

I know this is not related to wildlife, but it’s an extraordinary artwork celebrating the achievements of an extraordinary man, so I make no apologies for posting here. For additional info, more photos of the sculpture, and to see how the steel columns resolve into focus, please see this article on my website, Mandela Sculpture.
