From Skukuza we took the H4-1 to Lower Sabie where we stayed 2 nights. On the road we had some great sightings.
On one of the loops next to the Sabie river, some impies
Just before Nkulu picnic spot this Olive grass snake was doing some sliding manoeuvres all on one place on the tar road and did not move off into the grass, but stayed on the one location.
At Nkulu picnic spot, the resident trouble makers...
Spotted an Arrow marked babbler
Then the action started, first a road block, but we could not see why and then at last saw only some spots. A selfish family with no camera equipment whatsoever positioned themselves so that nobody could have a view of the leopard with a kill in a tree next to the Sabie river. Everyone was getting extremely frustrated with this family as they just sat there as if they were planted and even the SANP guides requested them to move, but they ignored them totally. So we decided to rather drive on...
We were rewarded with great sighting of some lions on the riverbank.
The evening at Lower Sabie was equisite as it was also a full moon night.
First the sunset...
Fortunately, I brought my tripod with and got this nice shot of the moon from the camp.
On this note, we ended another breath taking day in Kruger - the fires all smoking hot...
The next morning we went on the Bush Walk as I have shared on page 50 of this TR. Mlondozi dam has become a special place for us as we enjoyed a variety of sightings... to be continued.
