New Zealand: 200 seal pups…enough said!

When a passing traveller tells you about a beautiful waterfall which is not only free and easy to access but is also home to 200 seal pups who live and play freely in the falls, you go!

 

It was in Kaikoura, a haven of wildlife, that we found this gem of nature and having seen around 500 adult seals the previous day we didn’t think it possible to be more impressed, but boy were we wrong…

This seemed to be their favourite spot to play.

We were literally only feet, and at times inches, away from them!

P1010609

P1010588

That’s a guilty face if ever we saw one!

 

And since they already got a mention we wouldn’t want to leave out the adult seals, which in their vast numbers were very impressive in themselves.

Dead flies? Nope, more seals!

Strike a pose!

P1010375

As you’ll probably notice the following pictures are not of seals but the sunrise at our campsite was too gorgeous to not let you see it too…

That’s the highlights for Kaikoura, speak to you soon,

    • It was possibly the highlight of the trip for me actually, quite a little (and free!) thing to do but was absolutely amazing 🙂 they cam right up to us so we were inches away from them and could crouch down and see them up close! Thanks for the compliment and comment!
