On Safari With Curtis 13 December 2015

The first day of a new safari and we were spoiled with two lion sightings. The first a big male relaxing and hiding from the warming sun. Not much action going on except for when he decided to roll over onto his back with all four paws in the air.

 The second was nicer, 3 lionesses and a youngish male up on top of a rocky area overlooking their territory. With a troop of baboons just fifty meters away, all conveniently situated up or close to a tree, alarm calling.

The guests also had their sundowner drive this evening, unfortunately the weather wasn't on their side with several rain showers throughout the evening so limited sightings but they did see giraffe and had a troop of baboons come close as they had drinks.

Also seen were elephant, buffalo, Impala, steenbok, common duiker, sable, Vervet Monkeys, zebra, waterbuck, kudu, crocodile and lots of warthogs with piglets.

Birds included the cape glossy starling, white stork, marabou storks, red crested Korhaan, tawny eagle and the returning call of the woodlands kingfishers.
