Hi herewith report,

Camps stayed at P/kop and L sabie.
Pretoriuskop produced fair a numbers of game - buffalo, and general herds of game. Lion - 300 m N Shabeni on granite rocks, then another partially obscured lion visual E Napi rocks somewhere.
Lower sabie was unusually quiet, with sabie river front quiet. Big herds of buff - Muntshe plains. Lots of black-bellied korhaan there.
Nice big breeding herds of eles seen - Nwatimhiri, Nwaswitsontso.
The highlight - cheetah, a mother and two young (6-8 month) cubs, at Mhisinamond, N of Nwaswitsontso river, E of that new Hamiltons camp story. We spent over an hour with her & she was patiently attempting to hunt impala. Gate closure time later thwarted us being able to be as patient as her. If anyone is going soon, have a look in that area for that cheetah group. Female cheetahs move over large areas so a much greater area (> 100 sq km)can also produce the same ones. Good luck anyone searching in that area soon.

otherwise all good

Cheers for now,

w
