Incredible day today!!!
Expected temperature today was 40°+ so we headed out with no expectations!
Driving through numbi gate gave us great photo opportunities as a low mist covered the sun and as we drove gave us a lovely cool breeze.
A report of lions lying off the road and we headed off as the sun was burning through the clouds and I knew that they would move as soon as it got too hot.
We arrived to a see a few cars but no one could see the lions we drove up and down for 20 minutes very slowly scanning the area and then luck was on our side and one of the 2 magnificent males lifted it's head. We sat for 2 hours watching them move up and down and then head off into the shade.
A cool off was needed so we headed back to camp for a siesta.
At 3:30 we left for an afternoon drive. ...we were not disappointed lying in a fig tree was a beautiful female leopard. We watched her for over an hour as she looked around and eventually leapt down from the tree.. amazing.
Incredibly hot as we headed home. Along the road we saw a beautiful giraffe browsing an acacia tree and to our amazement was the brother of the female leopard stalking the giraffe!! Fantastic sighting!
Another beautiful day in the Kruger with very hot but happy guests.
