1 December 2017 - As we had only a one night Safari, we tried to maximize the drive time hoping to find some good sightings. Our highlight for the first afternoon came at a large waterhole where a young bull Elephant was thoroughly enjoying cooling down in the water. He splashed around and also fully submerged from time to time, chasing everything including the Hippos that were trying to rest on the edge of the bank!
2 December 2017 - The next morning we had great luck when we encountered 2 young male lions next to the road. We had some great views and picture opportunities as they lay in the open. They appeared to have eaten recently, panting quite heavily and with full stomachs. Eventually they got up and walked across the road in front of us and headed off out of sight. Shortly before finishing the Safari, we had some more great luck when we found a Cheetah on the move. It looked like a pregnant female and we saw her quite well, although not for very long, before she veered away from the road and disappeared into the undergrowth. A great way to finish on a high note!
