On Safari With Curtis: 20 January 2015

20 January 2015

After the success of last nights sunset drive this morning we made our way straight to where the leopard cubs were spotted in the hope that we might find them again.

We were in luck as we found the two of them high up in the tree. Being the only car we were spoilt and able to spend forty minutes with them before they scampered down the tree, scurried over the rocks and hid themselves in the grass.

Our second highlight happened pretty soon after in the shape of elephants. In the past two days we had seen plenty of bachelor groups or solitary bulls but we hadn't seen a family herd. This was soon sorted as we spotted a family group wandering in the bush but eventually they moved out into the open and across the road with the adults shielding the several youngsters they had in this herd.

Other mammals seen today were buffalo, lion, hyena, vervets, zebra, giraffe, warthog, kudu, waterbuck and two new ones in the form of baboons and cheetah.

We also spotted loads of new birds including black storks, pied kingfisher and goliath heron.

Other animals were marsh terrapins, chameleons, water monitor and rock monitor.
