South Africa - Morning Walk

This "morning walk" started with a 4 X 4 ride at 5 AM out into the bush. In our case, it included a close encounter with a group of white rhinos including a baby rhino. We crept up very close before they discovered us and, thankfully headed away from us at a rapid pace.
The rifles were .458 Winchester and intended to stop elephant sized animals in an emergency.
