On safari With Gert 28 September 2016

28 September 2016

After an early breakfast and loading luggage we left on a short morning drive as our guests were leaving today. The morning started off well with a 3 very large and grumpy looking old Buffalo bulls.

We then received word of a Leopard in the area and made our way to were it was spotted. Our luck was in, as it was still lying on a rock, fairly distant but out in the open; a large male soaking up the early morning sun through the wispy cloud cover!

Then more luck as we also found 3 lionesses basking on top of a nearby rocky outcrop - a brilliant end to a short and sweet Safari!

It was then time to bid farewell to Cesar and Sarah and welcome 5 new guests, also New Yorkers!

After checking in we went out on afternoon drive and got lucky, finding the same 3 lionesses, but by now it was time for them to wake up and start moving around. We had a brilliant sighting as they woke up, stretching, yawning and lazily playing around on the rocks, before getting down very close to us and playing around in the grass before setting off to wherever it was their instincts told them for their nightly prowl, a fitting end to a great day on Safari!
