On Safari With Curtis 25 -26 February 2015

25 February 2015
Today there was no game drive as the guests did the panoramic tour heading up to Blade River canyon stopping along the way at lots of look out points and waterfalls with a stop in graskop to try the famous pancakes!!!

26 February 2015
This morning was the last of this tour and after breakfast we set out on one last drive. Last parts of the morning were quiet but we did find another pride of lions, herd of buffalo and loads of elephants as well as kudu, impala, Waterbuck, warthog and steenbok.
The highlight of the morning tho was down at a watering hole where we found a pod of hippos very active particularly the dominant male as he showed his teeth and chased other younger males around before flicking his dung with his tail confirming this was his ground. Also at the dam a lone bull elephant splashing mud all over himself, the last remnants of a buffalo herd taking a drink, crocs and lots of birdlife.
Time to say goodbye to our guests Jessica and Brian who fly back to not so sunny and definitely not so warm Chicago. Thanks for your company over the last four days, great having you on tour and travel safe.
