On Safari With Curtis 5 August 2015

5 August 2015

The final morning of the tour and again the highlight of the drive was a cheetah sighting.

Possibly the same cheetah as we had seen a couple of days ago it was taking cover in a nice shady area. Visual wasn't great to start with but we found a small window where, with binoculars, we could see it clearly.

We were hoping it would start to get mobile but no luck although we got lots of tail flicks and a few times it would roll around taking a good interest in everything around it.

Also seen this morning Impala, common duiker, steenbok, kudu, waterbuck, buffalo, elephant, zebra, giraffe, warthog, hippo, klipspringer and one final new species for this tour in the shape of common reedbuck.

Birds included a juvenile bataleur, African fish eagle, reed cormorants and black collared barbet

Great having Jennifer and Robin on tour, really great to meet you and sharing some amazing sightings with you. Safe travels guys!!
