On safari With Mark 15-16 December 2015
15 December 2015
So today we start my Last tour for 2015. My great pax Mimmi and Tomas arrived and off we headed for the Kruger.
We had no soon entered when we found 3 big buffalo bulls, a dazzle of zebra and a herd of Kudu. As we continued with the afternoon drive we found a further 2 herds of buffalo and some fantastic Elephants that crossed over the road in front of our car.
With many happy sighting for the afternoon it was time to head into camp for the night.
16 December 2015
After an early breakfast we headed out in search of some cats while it was still cool.
We got to hear about a leopard and responded. Didn’t find it and carried on our drive. Lions were found and as we sat with these 2 beautiful looking males and 1 female – up got the male and proceeded to mate with the female. The beginning of the mating process had just started.
We also received a further tip on another leopard which we responded to. This was great and we did get to see it lying under a sickle bush trying to escape the heat of the day. Although lots of traffic on the roads for this time of the year, the animals are still out and about and showing themselves well.
Further to this we spotted many different general game with further sightings of buffalo, rhino and elephant.
We returned to camp feeling blessed with the sightings of the day.
Let’s see what the future holds for us on this safari.
