On Safari With Curtis 14 December 2015

14 December 2015

The joys of the rainy season as we had a huge thunderstorm overnight and woke to a damp cold rainy morning.

Didn't stop us getting a great elephant sighting as we found four bull elephants just outside the lodge fence.  Two giants and two smaller were busy eating. We followed one who seemed to be checking out the marula trees for any early fruit which may have dropped.

Another lion sighting this morning, with two males lying in the damp grass, not much movement but then one started to roar which then persuaded the second one to join in.

The highlight though was a group of three rhino. This was the one sighting that my guests really wanted to see and to get a good photo of. And after a couple of drives without a sniff off one it was lovely to cross it off their wishlist.

Also seen steenbok,  common duiker,  Impala,  giraffe,  warthogs,  waterbuck,  kudu, zebra, hippo, crocodile,  Vervet Monkeys and buffalo and hyena.
