On Safari With Gert 27 September 2016

27 September 2016

Today we started a one-night safari with Sarah and Cesar from New York. After arrival and checking in to the lodge we left for an afternoon Game drive during which we saw a good variety of general game.

One of the highlights was definitely a large bull Sable Antelope, which we found by himself, grazing fairly close to the road. He offered some good views and picture opportunities and looked very majestic with his jet-black coat and large curved horns!

Another highlight of the afternoon came shortly before closing time, when we encountered 2 female Spotted Hyena with their cubs of about 4 - 5 months old respectively. 3 of the cubs were tugging at leftovers of a carcass outside the den, while the other was nursing from one of the adult females out in the open and very relaxed; ending our afternoon drive on a special note!
