Hot off my Cellphone:
Lions on the gravel road from Timvati to Olifants - 6 females. Also dead hippo with vultures. Leopard on the sandbanks under the Olifants bridge, he catched an impala.


Forgot about black rhino on the timvati road. Also a jackal chasing a steenbok. Most of the trees are blooming. Weeping boer bean is pretty with the red flowers. Most of the bigger birds are on their nest. Untill tomorrow...


She has UNBELIEVABLE luck :shock: :shock: :mrgreen:
First a Lion Kill then a Leopard Kill & then almost a Jackal kill & Black Rhino to top it off is Amazing...
