We started our safari at Numbi and what seems to be the norm these days . Our very first species seen was Elephant!
We watched a beautiful bull approach us and then cross the road with a couple of vocals right in front of us!
After checking in at camp and a bit of a rest we headed out on our afternoon game drive! The highlights were good sightings of Elephant , White Rhino and a large herd of Giraffe in what was otherwise a relatively quiet drive.
We head out tomorrow at the crack of dawn so we hopefully may find some felines!

We set off at 5-30 am and were dually rewarded with a great sighting of a male lion and 3 lioness in the middle of the road! The male for some unknown reason was extremely aggressive and mock charged a Park safari vehicle when they approached the sighting!
Elephant ,W. Rhino, Buffalo, Kudu, Waterbuck, Giraffe and Impala were seen on numerous occasions throughout the day!
Later we came across a 12 member strong Lion pride in an open area of a river bed making it a perfect opportunity for guests to get that "classic" Lion pic , especially as there were 2 tiny cubs and 3 superb black manned males!
Towards the end of the day we had fun amongst close encounters with the Hyena clans youngsters and had a great visual of a 2m plus Black Mamba stalking a frog!
It was a great day!
