On Safari With Mark 17/18 June 2015

17 June 2015

I collected our guests in Nelspruit and headed down to Kruger. As time was limited we did a short game drive around the area finding fabulous general game: Impala, kudu, warthog, common duiker, steenbok, vervet monkeys and hippos.

18 June 2015

This was another kettle of fish - to much to report, however the highlights must be the female leopard stalking Impala literally 5m from our car. In the end she was spotted and the Impala moved off and so did she.

Following highlight was when we spotted 8 lions at a waterhole that had just caught a buffalo, while feeding on it the one massive male got up and moved around the gwari bushes and proceeded to mate with a female. In all the time in Kruger I have never seen that. Usually very little is eaten in the mating period.

Other animals: giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, Nyla's, bushbuck, steenbok, duikers, blue wildebeest, zebra, warthog, spotted hyena, elephant, rhinos, a herd of 600 buffalo, mating honey badgers, mating Kori bustards.

Fantastic trip so far.
