Hitching a Ride


During our final game drive in the Mara North Conservancy in June of 2019, we encountered a buffalo munching on grass during some inclement weather.

These large, dangerous and grumpy bovines make for some great photography, particularly when an oxpecker is perched on the animal, hitching a ride.
