On Safari With The Google Employee Group

22 August 2015

Today 15 Google employees were picked up at their hotel in Sandton at 06:00am and transferred to Numbi Gate where guides Mark and Robbie were awaiting their arrival.

Once they had arrived they climbed aboard the Open Safari Vehicles and headed straight out on a afternoon drive where lots of general game was spotted and enjoyed.

As it got closer to gates closing we then headed back to camp where guests had a good dinner and a evening swim before heading to bed for a well deserved rest, all looking forward to what tomorrow would bring.

This morning the Google team experienced probably one of the best leopard sightings in a very long time!!!

We got to a sighting of a leopard which was at first sleeping in some lush green reeds off a dry river bed when suddenly it got up, walked to the edge of a pool of water and drank for 20 minutes in clear views in front of us!!!!

Elephants were spotted on more than one occasion, as were huge herds of Buffalo!

White rhino were seen in abundance with some marvelous chasing moments and also a "bull standoff"

Mark then located a beautiful Cheetah close to the road and a lion pride with tiny cubs were spotted a bit far into the bush but could be seen with binoculars.

A majestic Sable bull was also sighted together with brilliant general game!!!

It was then time to say goodbye to the group and with one last photo taken all together they proceeded with their transfer back to Johannesburg. We wish them safe travels forward and hope they had a great safari, even though it was short we hope it was a memorable experience for all.
