On Safari With Mark From 23 February 2016

23 February 2016

After collecting our new guests in Nelspruit we set off towards the park. Entering through the Phabeni gate, we had more than enough time for a slow drive towards Pretoriuskop.

Our highlight for the afternoon, had to be the herd of elephant that crossed the road in front of us. They moved relatively quickly, as they headed to water. After a short drink it was on their way to search for either more food or shade.

Many different animals were spotted throughout the drive which kept it interesting for my guests.

We were the first car out of camp and headed along towards Skukuza for breakfast.

Crazy day had by us with so much happening.

We spotted many beautiful animals and by 14:00 we were on our way back to camp.

Highlights had to be the wild dog been chased by a hippo at a man made water hole. Further to this we spotted Lions, Leopards and cheetah of the cats with many other fantastic sightings of elephants and rhinos in mud baths and water holes.

With so much activity, we picked up two more guests and had a lovely afternoon spending some quality time at herds of Impala, dazzles of zebra and a few individual elephants to round off the day.

Once again we set off first, so that we could find some quality animal sightings before the heat of the day. This was achieved, and by the afternoon we had spotted so many fantastic sightings of herds of elephant, buffalo. Fantastic rhino sightings and bumping into 3 lioness walking parallel with the road. The only Leopard we could find lay at the base of a tree, with apparently it's Impala meal up in the top branches. Very difficult to see as the distance wasn't on our side and we could only view with a good set of binoc's. Having said that we were still happy as very often leopards can be missed.

Back to camp for a rest as some of my guests are on a night drive, to spot some of the nocturnal animals Kruger has to offer.

So far it's been a great safari and all the guests have enjoyed spotting these lovely creatures with me.

Tomorrow, just a short drive before it's goodbye to all as they set off back to JHB.
