Thumbnails - Animals of Matombu Wild, South Africa

We spent 8 days in November 2009 at Matombu Wild (www.matombu.co.za) which is 40km north of Middelburg, Mpumalanga Province (formerly Eastern Transvaal), South Africa. This private ranch has open grasslands, high ridges and deep valleys and a good selections of plains game. During our stay we went on a number of game viewing and hunting drives throughout Matombu and these are photos of a few of the animals we saw.
