On Safari With Mark 5 - 7 June 2015

5 June 2015

After collecting my guests in Nelspruit we headed down to camp where my guests went out on the sundown drive. Great sighting of buffalo and then on their return to camp they found 2 wild dog playing in the road and spent time with them taking many pictures. It's only when they returned to camp that they realized how rare these are.

We set out from camp after breakfast and enjoyed numerous sightings of elephant and rhino and the found 3 cheetah hunting Impala. Unfortunately their prey spotted them and dashed of in a heartbeat.

Further on down the road our following highlight was that of a large male leopard just off the side of the road. Although walking along he did present himself for a couple of quick snaps and then he was gone.

Other animals include, waterbuck, giraffe, warthog, buffalo, rhino, common duiker, steenbok, baboons, monkeys, kudu and mongoose

We wait and see what tomorrow holds.

7 June 2015

Today we went on the search for Lions as it's our last chance for some of my guests to see these from the safety of our safari car. Tomorrow they on a bushwalk and then depart back to JHB.

After a quick stop at Skukuza we drove up to Marola loop where we had a difficult visual of 1 massive male lion lying sleeping in the shade.

After this we carried on North finding a further 5 males also lying in the shade but at least a better sighting as every now and then they got up and moved around, presenting the guests with good photo op's

Our last highlight for the day, was when a male lion came walking up the road and past our vehicle. Guests loved it and although there was so much hype in the media regarding the lioness attack this last week. All my guests felt incredibly comfortable with the presence of this wild beast.

Other animals spotted, Impala, warthog, waterbuck, buffalo, rhino, elephant, hippos, crocodiles, baboons, monkeys, nyala said, duikers, steenbok and kudu's
