On Safari With Robbie 30 April 2015 and 1 May 2015

30 April 2015

Setting out under a starry sky we were soon transfixed by a magnificent sunrise 30 minutes after leaving camp!

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the Lion and Vulture interaction up at Jones dam! The 6 males were in superb visual range observing the 2 lioness constantly charging at well over 100 Vultures (4 species noted) trying to get at a well devoured Buffalo carcass!!

This went on for well over 1 hour! We also had one of the females come and drink directly in front of us!!!

Upon leaving the sighting it still seemed like the franticly ravenous birds were going to have to wait a bit longer before their bellies got fed!!!

Other sightings today were loads of Elephant and Buffalo herds, 2 classic W.Rhino sightings, Giraffe, Impala, Kudu, Nyala, Baboons, Zebra, Waterbuck, Hippos, Crocs and 33 bird species!

1 May 2015

Our last short morning drive worked for us as we were searching for 2 Carnivores, namely Hyena and Leopard.

We got the flat rocks Hyena clan all out on the road making for some superb photographs especially with the early morning sun!

We missed a Leopard call in on the radio because of time constraints as Stephanie and Nina were flying to Livingstone at 11!!!

However they departed for Vic Falls with great memories of Kruger .... A Park that never ceases to amaze and fascinate!!!
