On Safari With Curtis 31 March 2015

31 March 2015

After heavy rains, last night, we awoke to a cold very grey overcast morning with the expectation of more rain.

Nevertheless we set out once again in high hopes. The highlight was our first sighting of hyena this tour.

Just a lone adult who was a little apprehensive of all the cars parked watching. It become clear that it wanted to cross over the road and so we waited. As the amount of vehicles whittled down just to two it saw its opportunity and crossed over the road in front of us and proceeded to disappear on the other side of the road.

Throughout the day we saw plenty of impala, kudus, waterbuck, hippo, vervets, steenbok, zebra, warthog, a family of dwarf mongoose as well as elephant and buffalo near the end.

The afternoon produced more general game as well as two new mammals to add to the list in the shape of a pair of klipspringers and a white rhino.
