On Safari With Karen 22 October 2015

22 October 215

On our last morning of this safari we had a short game drive before exiting the park. We saw a tiny baby giraffe that could barely put its head on its mum's hindquarters. We met a family of white rhino with a very small baby.

And we saw a baby elephant that was still wobbly on its feet, so adorable.

But our highlight was seeing a second leopard of this safari. It caught us by surprise. We heard reedbuck alarm calling and scouted around when it suddenly crossed the road in front of us. After crossing it stood still for a second and while the reedbucks were still going crazy on our right he walked away to our left. Nicely camouflaged we had on and off sightings of him. However the moment another reedbuck in the high grass broke cover and ran away, the leopard instantly paid attention. It stopped in its tracks and watched the reedbuck go, which gave us an excellent opportunity for some facial shots. He had no interest in the reedbuck though, as after a few seconds he walked on again. But it was a great end of this safari!

Other interesting sightings included kudu, lots of zebras, giraffes, elephants, white rhinos, buffalos, klipspringers, impalas, waterbucks, reedbucks, common grey duikers and warthogs.
