3rd timers Szil and Vannesa joined me in Nelspruit for what we had planned to be a great Safari.
After a quick lunch at Pretoriuskop, we headed out and about.
Great General animals spotted thought the afternoon.
On our return loop towards our first camp, we spotted a leopardess, walking away from us. She eventually stopped and still in sight, she lay down with not a care in the world. We spent a lot of time with her and as we were about to leave so she got up and walked right across the road in front of us. As we were the only car with her, it was incredibly special and will stay as one of the highlights for the safari.

Today we set out for Satara and on route had some spectacular, elephant, rhino and buffalo sightings. This together with general animals turned out to be a great day despite the cool temperatures.
On route we got to spot a causal cheetah walking and calling for his brothers. No luck on spotting them but fantastic to see how other animals around him respond to his presence.
Further highlight was the ostriches, that were spotted closer to the end of the drive.
These been special for my clients as they had assisted me in the rehabilitation of these birds in the past.
The last highlight that kept us out of camp till the gates closed was a female Impala giving birth. Amazing to sit and watch for an hour and half the process she is in and what she does to bring a little life into this world.
Good luck little guy, girl
