hoyle,
Thanks for your comment. It is really nice to hear people enjoy the stories. It's a pleasure to write them and preparing the related pictures. Looking at the pics does give good memories.
Enjoy your trip in May... and hope the animals will find you :) :) If you see tuskers ...please let me know , in doubt make some pics and maybe I can help a bit for Id'ing them.
Before you take-off I will launch a few more stories as a warming up :thumbs_up:

Aat, as we have come to expect, great stories and amazing photo's. Really a pleasure to read and look - and then to wait for your next visit! Our good friends, Knotts, and us are off to KNP in May for 5 weeks. My friend has copied your info for the South, so hope to find some of the tuskers. Thanks for
sharing once again.

Pumbaa,
Thanks. You know this place and it was beautiful with the almost black rocks, green bush and the leopard mother and cub. It was about changing camera and binoc's all the time. The cheetah cubs (this young) was new for us, have seen older ones but this was amazing. Think we had all the luck because mother cheetah was about crossing the road so being there just at that moment was the luck we had. :D :D


Pumbaa wrote:
Btw I up to now did not see any single leopard cub, Aat :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

What a great sighting of the spotted ones so close to the hide - That area is indeed made for leopards :dance:

The cheetahs are gorgeous and Mom is beautiful - I always love their fluffy little manes cheetah cubs do have :dance: :dance: :dance:

Once again you always know where to look and then the luck is being with you :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Thanks for your warm comment. Idd, looks like we were lucky with the sightings and think there is a little to come. :wink: :wink:

Oh that is so cute, Aat. All three those cubs are still very young. So cute. Like the light "manes" on the cheetah-babies. You guys were lucky indeed - very special sightings! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Aat,
I will not mention the incredible luck you guys have with the sightings :whistle: :whistle:

Great story about the two mothers with the cubs. Looking at the pictures one realizes how difficult it is for them to raise their babies. The tiny cheetah cubs in the wild among buffalo, lions, hyena and raptors.
Thanks for sharing !! and looking forward to your next story
:popcorn: :popcorn:

Hi Heksie,
Think we have to admit we have had a lot of luck :wink: :wink:
So special to see these cubs and something you don't forget but in memory forever.
Next time please join me in the car so you can make your own kiekies... :gflower:
