Great Stuff Bridgeman :thumbs_up:


any photos??????


It seems like a great place - I once saw 7 lions lying down at Ngotso and some Wildebeest came to drink...one of the wildebeest decided to lie down about 40 m off from the lions completely unaware of them. The lions were so full and fast asleep they didnt notice him either. It was quite comical although we were worried for the wildebeest. We eventually had to leave as it was getting dark!

Hi all! Bridgeman is a guide at Olifants camp, and we are thrilled that he shares his experiences with us here.

I will be merging these posts into this topic - Olifants sightings soon.
