Do you always see things from angles not seen before, Saraf? :lol: But have to say: well done on this new spin on the things that actually makes it possible that the Big-5 could actually be seen together in one un-Photoshopped photograph. Otherwise, what are the chances?

This thread's been around for a while and I took the photo nearly 2 years ago and I've only just put the 2 together.

Anyway, there is a chance that there are lions in that scene. I think this was the day when just as we were finishing our coffee and rusks 2 lionesses and 3 cubs stood up far into the distance. No way could I capture them on "film", we could only just make them out without binoculars. Still they could be there.

Any recent Big Five in one photo? :) I have never been that lucky.

Location: Heart, mind and soul on an early morning drive close to Satara, unfortunately the body is in CPT!
Will try my level best to also contribute to this thread with our upcoming trip from 23 Sep - 10 Oct DV

Best sighting with only pics of the leopard were a leopard on the right hand side of the road with rhino and elephant grazing on the left hand side of the road, about 10km north of Tshokwane.

By the way, TINY and LEIGHVLASSO, I too am a Benonian, now living in Cape Town! :thumbs_up:
