Day 9 18th May 2013
This morning we left Olifants and headed towards Satara where we will be spending the next 2 nights.
On the way to Satara we saw plenty of gen game, and quite a few Black backed jackal
We arrived at Satara, had breakfast and decided to do a drive on the S100 as it was still a long time before we could book in.
We saw lots of big herds of Impala and Zebra, also saw waterbuck kudu and big families of warthog also saw 2 lion but very far could not get a pic.We turned onto the S41 and saw lots often game plus a lot of Ellie's .from there we took the H6 back towards Satara
Not far on the H 6 we saw 3 cars parked and there they were 2 cheetah resting under a tree, they were a bit far off the road but we did manage to get some pics as every now and then they lifted their heads.It was a pleasure being able to watch them without battling for a good viewing spot, as there were only 4 cars there.
Getting back onto the H1-3 we realized we were still far to early for check in at Satara and decided to take the H7 and see what was at Nsemani dam. There was a big herd of Ellie's there easy 50+ drinking and playing in the water.we watched for quite a while and then returned to Satara too check in
Checked in at Satara and went to our chalet G167 right next to the fence. The only problem was it was the only one in G circle that did not have the fridge caged in,didn't see any monkeys and just prayed our food would be safe
I had some laundry to do so I left Carrier on duty to watch the fridge while I was at the laundry.
I put the washing in the machine and phoned DB, she appeared within 3 mins and we had a lovely chat, so nice to meet her
On returning to our chalet all hell had broken loose, Carrier had decided that there were no monkeys and gone inside to rest for a while, well the monkeys were having a royal time in our fridge, stole yogurt , bread cheese eggs and cold meat . I chased them away and saved what I could and went inside to give Carrier a good
We then turned the fridge around and went to the shop to buy some more of the necessary supplies for our supper
That evening we relaxed having a nice braai and saw the resident Hyena patrolling the fence as usual .
