28 September 2015 – 30 September 2015
Been North in the Park is fantastic as very little traffic on the roads keeps the sightings extra special.
Highlights for these past 3 days has to be the following:
In our drive north towards shingwetzi we came out of mopani and slap bang into the 2 Roan antelope Bulls walking down the road. Absolutely fantastic to see them up close and personal. These animals were 5m away from us and so so relaxed.
After spending approximately 30min with them we turned the car around and continued with our drive and once again had a fantastic Honey Badger walk out in front of us. He stood in the middle of the road and watched us roll up to him. This was great, as he then turned and headed off into the bush with a mission. My guests loved the way he moved as he scouted around looking for something to eat.
Our next highlight was our first morning drive out of shingwetzi as we turned north and drove approximately 5km up the road we spotted a pride of 8 lions, enjoying the morning sun.
On our second morning we decided to head up to Punda Maria for Breakfast and on our way we had two very special moments with the first male Nyala antelope been spotted for the trip and further down the road we found a female Sharps Greysbok.
Great to be able to spend quality time with such fantastic animals.
Massive herds of Buffalo (700) and Large amounts of elephant (100) on one drive back to camp.
Every couple of kilometers there is bound to be a dazzle of zebra crossing the road or blue wildest and Kudu.
Further to this we've spotted: giraffe, Impala, warthog, dwarf,banded,slender mongoose ostrich tsessebe, hippo and crocodile.
Looking forward to the next drive, day or week as the list grows of all the animals spotted.
