On Safari With Robbie 8 January 2016

8 January 2016

The first safari for me on day 1 went really well!!

With keen Swiss clients and suitable weather conditions we entered through Phabeni gate and saw general game like it was coming out of fashion!

After a break at Skukuza camp we came across the days highlight which was 2 Lion sightings not very far from each other and very close to the road!

The first being 4 very strong Lioness with a young large male and the second being 4 males sleeping close to the road!

In the afternoon we spotted a magnificent pairing of 2 Sable Bulls, A large herd of Buffalo and 1 rather crazy Elephant bull!

Today we set off in pitch darkness Nina and Luko were rewarded with some unique sightings of all the big 5.

However for them the highlight of their day was the 3 Cheetah brothers that they encountered on their sunset safari!

The 3 males were spotted on the road performing to their best ability!!!!

Brad and Sarah joined me for a short afternoon drive from 16 -30 to 18-15 and luck came their way fast spotting W.Rhino, Buffalo, Elephant, Impala and Waterbuck but their highlight was a female Leopard snoozing on some warm rocks close by!!!

Today was rather wet and drizzly which had an effect on sightings although when one puts it all down we had phenomenal locations of Elephant, W rhino , Buffalo and general game!

Our 2 top sightings ended up tied as the best of the day ... That being 1) A Hyena clan on the hunt nice and close to the road and 2) A herd of 25 Sable Antelope also close to the road!
