Well .. I'm back .. and before I get hammered by certain angels for a trip report .. I thought I should start with my 1st post before attending to any other matters.

Great report... excellent Leopard sighting and pictures. In the last picture the Leopard looks agitated (ears pinned back)... must have been the crowed!

Saved your report for last — a great way to end my day! What a lovely leopard and quite amazing that she stayed IN the road and for such a long time and came so close to you :shock:

(I guess I'm in the minority of being a bit sorry that you posted your whole report so quickly, because I quite enjoy the aniticipation of looking forward to the next installment :wink:)

Thanks all ...

Nope .. I did not see any lions (which concerns me as I've always seen lions on every trip thus far, and this year I've been twice and twice I did not see them :? ) .. But we did hear them towards Bobbejaans Krans in Satara and accross the Letaba river in the evening at Letaba.

Maybe my jinx will be gone in 3 weeks when I go again .. As for the leopard Ollie, you are 110% correct ... People were driving past him about 1 meter away .. 1 guy even hooted (but I think he pressed it by mistake) .. People were surrounding him ... If the rest of them did what we did they would have had a better view instead of josseling for position. We just switched off the car and looked .. The crowd must have been to bad for him coz he then walked straight to our car .. just passed us and sat just behind our vehicle. Obviously anyone who tried to come closer and bully me out of the way just got a look and they realised it was futile to try and get me to move .. He then went back through the crowd (yes he was pacing up and down often) and that is when me and the in-laws in the other car decided to leave him in peace. Don't know about the other cars but 2 less vehicles was all we could do to help.

@ DB .. You had some "magic mushrooms" again? :twisted: Trees .. who would have thought of that :lol:

As for the trip report .. Once I'm on a roll there's not stopping me ... (Sorry :redface: :lol: )

Great report W@H, and great pix.

Hope your hand's doing better! Was it your Amarula-drinking hand?

Fortunately not .. but that is why I love inventors .. both your hands can be out of action and you can still drink (straws .. what an amazing invention) .. and if you don't have that at hand .. you can always order a well trained angel around :twisted:
