On Safari With Mark

Over the last couple of days, the game viewing has deteriorated and I believe it's because of the high traffic volumes with locals been on holiday.
None the less, our two highlights for this tour has to be the cheetah and wild dog sighting.
On our first afternoon drive we heard about a possible wild dog sighting and drove towards it. We were in luck as all 8 dogs lay around in the shade, every now and then presenting us with ideal photo opportunities. Guests are very happy to have seen the "rarest predator" in Kruger.
On our morning drive, we stumbled upon 3 male cheetah, all marking territory on the shoulder of the road. We stayed with them as long as possible, eventually loosing sight as they moved off the road.
Other animals include: Impala, waterbuck, kudu, common duiker, steenbok, common reedbuck, zebra, giraffe, hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, elephants, rhino and many different bird species.
As we only have 24 hours left, let's hope we can find a lion and leopard for the clients.
