Blue & Gold 2 - Other animals

The colours in Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe are a photographer's dream. Pre-dawn blue is washed with a deep rose tint as dawn breaks. This turns to a wonderful golden hue as the sun crawls above the horizon, only to be replaced by a blue haze in the forests as the day progresses. Towards the end of the day the whole process runs backwards.

My previous post contained photos of elephants, this one shows some of the other animals (and the pre-dawn view from our campsite) that we saw there. All the photos (except the eland) in both posts were taken while on foot. This enabled us to get closer to the animals and to choose the best angles to take advantage of the light. Mana Pools is one of the few places where visitors can enjoy this wonderful experience.

What is Campfire?

Campfire is a place where published items with the most participation go so that everyone knows what’s hot. The more people that collaborate around an item the hotter the fire gets.

Starting a Campfire

Campfires get started when a published item in the Explore section recieves a high rate of participation from other members.

What is Stoking?

Stoking is a form of fire starting. When you stoke an item on safarious you’re basically promoting as a campfire worthy. Stoking has a higher value over comments and views taking place on an item.

The more stokes the higher the chances an item will catch and turn a campfire.
