On Safari With Mark From 20 March 2016

20 March 2016

So the begging of a tour and some on sundown drive and some with me on an afternoon drive and with a little communication between guides, both sets of guests got to see the magnificent leopard that was lying on a granite rock enjoy a afternoon snooze. When everyone was there, it was time for this beauty to Yawn and stretch and then stand up and move. Slowly edging it's way towards us. This glamor boy lay on a rock and posed for us approximately 30m away from the car. It was fantastic to spend 1:45hrs with such a beautiful animal. With the time catching us it was back to camp for dinner.

We left before the rush and found many different new species for the clients: elephant, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, warthog, Impala, steenbok, klipspringer, common duiker, checkmate baboon, vervet monkey, hippos and many bird species.

Our highlight was the 4 lioness and 1 male lion that walked out and crossed the road in front of us. Not another car to bother the sighting and everyone enjoyed seeing these beautiful animals. We returned to camp happy to get out of the midday heat.

After a short rest, we headed out to search for something new. We were in luck, as we were alerted by a fleeting Impala to 4 cheetah. After spending once again 1:45hrs with these beautiful animals it was within seconds that all changed and the animals disappeared into the bush, chasing a herd of Impala. We all hoped and believed that they were successful as no sign of their return to the road, despite the Impala running across our path right in front of us.

Guests are incredibly happy with all the sightings and What's funny is that everyone has had such special sightings of the "big 5" yet we still in search of a "Dazzel" of zebra

With this in our sights we set off tomorrow for our last drive before we return the guests to JHB.
