I was curious about everyones favourite moments in the Kruger Park! I remember one particular moment that I'm sure I will never forget!
This was quite a few years back. We were driving on the gravel road between Satara and Nwanetsi picnic spot. The sun didn't even say hello properly, when we came accross 2 lions right next to the road . . . but that wasn't the moment!
Driving a bit further we came accross 2 cheetahs, walking right past us in the road! Was amazing!!! . . . But the moment that I won't forget . . . a bit further there was a river bed on the left, very lush. We spotted a leopard approximately 60m in the bush. He was standing frozen, just his white tip of his tail was clearly visible! We then realized that he was after a bushbuck! It was a few seconds that he stood there and then the next moment jumped away chasing the antelope . . . and he was gone . . . how dissapointing I thought, such action and I can't see anything! I was looking left and right to see if I can't get a peek at the chase! But right then the bushbuck came running from the river bed, into the road and straight at us! He just just ducked the car and went of in the bushes! The leopard followed short on the antelope's heels, but stopped in the road when he saw our car. He stood there staring at us for a while then took a jog right past our car! Phew!!! Was fantastic!!!
Although that it felt that we cost the young leopard his breakfast!
I won't forget that moment!
