I have had the 2 most awesome days of safari with great sightings around every corner.
My guests the Richards family from California and I have had the 2 most amazing days of Safari.
This morning we had 2 different herds of elephants. The first herd was drinking at a big waterhole and with them a little calf less than a month old. The second herd surrounded our game drive vehicle and were feeding around us for more than 30 minutes. They then proceeded to have a dust bath in the road in front of us before they disappeared into the bushes.
Furthermore on their first night we had 2 leopard sightings, the first a male leopard feeding of a large warthog and on the second I a female leopard feeding of an impala kill less than 300 meters from the male leopard.
The next morning we tracked the Sand River Pride of lions for more than an hour and a half before we saw them in the Sand River. The 5 cubs were all playing in trees above us, chasing each other all over the place.
Last night was an absolute dream of a safari. We came across 5 rhinos, a massive herd of impala and a lone buffalo bull all feeding together on a massive clearing. While sitting with the rhinos my tracker June spotted another rhino and calf in the distance. As we left the sighting we came across loads of zebras and wildebeest all feeding together and less than 5 minutes away we found a herd of almost 3 hundred buffalo’s and another 5 rhinos.
After our sun downer stop we spend our evening following 2 lionesses and an 8 year old male lion. On our way back to the lodge we saw a puff adder (snake) and 2 different spotted eagle owls.
The best of all we still have another 2 safaris left this afternoon and tomorrow morning.
