Think that was some of the men thought when I beat my own quick-loading record (and was not trying to do so) and was 2 seconds faster than any of them!

Well done EJ on your achievement. I feel proud for what you have achieved so goodness knows what you must be feeling.
Keep up the good work and interesting posts. Being far from Kruger you keep me/us in contact with what is happening and all those interesting sightings.

Last night I did a bush braai drive for BnD although collected guests from the gate. It was quiet, but still got impalas, scrub hares, zebs, spotted eagle owls, and lots of chatter.

Tonight it was a night drive in the rain! Fortunately easy-going guests, and a bit of joking etc kept us laughing despite the weather. We had scrub hares, impalas, duiker, hippo, giraffe, ?buffalo, rhinos, leopard (right next to us and then lying in the grass grooming himself), barred owl, and lots of water thick-knees keeping us amused with their antics.

Morning drive tomorrow, weather permitting.....so off to bed now!

Wow ecojunkie! Leopard lying next to you in the grass grooming himself!! That must have been wonderful! :dance: :dance:

Lots of lovely sightings on your night drive! Plus the bonus of easy-going guests in the rain! Sounds stunning! :clap: :clap:

Quiet morning drive with 5 folk from camp. We had scrub hare, impalas, kudus three times, duiker, lots of birds, lone buffalo, giraffe......evidence of ellies and rhinos but no sightings. Now for some brekkie and then decided whether to 'office' or take it easy..... Need some groceries though....

All has been relatively quiet recently as far as drives go. Animals have been around camp though.....seen ellies, bushbuck, waterbuck, impalas, hyenas for example....also heard hippos, lions and leopard.

I am going to try to catch up with some photo posting while I sit in lectures (at Skukuza for Parks Heritage course) - I am just here to help trouble-shoot etc but enjoying listening too. Always gain a bit more knowledge!

Last night I joined DB and Hawk for a meal, and the preparations etc were supervised by this bushbaby which spent a long time in the tree above us. Hawk and I kept trying to get photos, and it would pose beautifully until we were ready to snap and then would move!

Giraffe on the road

Image

Big lion footprint on the road - we had passed earlier and it was not there then...... we looked closer and the marks showed that it had actually tried to catch an impala but probably just missed.

Image

This hyena tried to come into camp earlier this week. I heard it walk along the fence next to the caravan and went out with my camera, only to see it heading towards the open gate. I chased it off after taking some photos.
