So Zazu, a Kudu, a Mongoose, and an Eland Walk into a Bar...

The entrance to the Save Valley Conservancy in Zimbabwe: warnings against rhino poaching.
The rhino poaching is something the conservancy is actively working against as the rhino numbers in Zimbabwe continue to fall.

I visited during the end of the rainy season, where the dry season has begun to make an appearance in the dry river beds.

We may have referred to this red-billed hornbill as "Zazu" for our entire visit to Save Valley....

A female kudu.

Confession: prior to the moment of seeing this impressive male eland, I had no idea that elands existed.
They are awesome.  Possibly a new favorite animal (I lie: elephants still win).

Why, hello, Mama and Baby giraffe!

Another confession: I really had no idea that this is what a mongoose looks like...

Et voila!  A young male kudu.
