On Safari With Robbie 12 October 2016

12 October 2016

Yet again setting out early ( 5am! ) paid dividends for Vrekesh and Rashie as the 2 species we aimed to find where ticked off before 06-15 am!!

White Rhino and Spotted Hyena were the ones!!Large herds of Impala, Waterbuck, Kudu, Elephant and Buffalo were also seen with excellent photographic opportunities!

A large male Leopard was also spotted fast asleep in a Marula tree!

The sighting of the morning however was the Huge Sable Bull we found with excellent visual about 5 km from Pretoriouskop camp on the Napi road!

Sables normally walk away from tourists vehicles but this majestic specimen literally stood entirely still for the entire time observed and in perfect early morning light!!!

It was an awesome safari for the 2 enthusiasts from India with overall highlights being:
1) Sable bull,
2) 2 Leopard sightings,
3) 16 Spotted Hyena,
4) W . Rhino,
5) African Wild dog,
6) Numerous Elephant calf sightings
7) 43 bird species and of course the huge Hippo Bull charging through the savannah to its water!


We say happy travels further and hopefully you guys will bring the rains!!
