|Elephant on the Sabie River|
We were definitely more lucky than many however and had some really amazing encounters over the days we spent in Kruger. On one particular day (thanks Jaime & Anthony!!) we had great quality sightings of lion, black rhino, cheetah, buffalo, zebra, giraffe...... and the very next morning on our way out we had three leopard sightings with 4 different leopards!!
So after an amazing first 2 weeks of April, I'm taking a break from safari work for the next 6 weeks to explore a little bit of Australia and visit friends and family there.
Therefore my next posting won't be until June when I will share with you some of my Australian experiences!
More riverside sightings......
|A young Kudu antelope|
|Lionesses getting ready to hunt|
On cloudy, windy days many of the herbivores congregate together out in open spaces where they can keep a better look out for predators.
|Giraffe, Water buck and Zebra|
And two VERY special sightings......
|Cheetah also looking out on this cool windy day......|
|Hippo making a tactical retreat from a Black rhino|
|The first of the four leopards seen in our first hour of the morning drive|
|This Leopard Tortoise was on a mission to get somewhere......|
|The intent gaze of the Brown Snake Eagle|
