Egyptian Goose

The Egyptian Goose (Afrikaans name, Kolgans) is really a large goose-like duck. They are found everywhere around wetlands and the grassy areas around the edges. Egyptian geese feed mainly grass and seeds.

The goslings are so fluffy and cute. We have seen some mothers with 14 chicks, unfortunately they do not all make it through to adulthood.

These juvenile Egyptian Geese are at the gangly teenage stage.
