Hi Elsa! If the cortisone was an injection it will last; actually it works better at a distance of a couple of weeks :thumbs_up:

Isn't the leopard mostly the one missing? :tongue:

Hi everyone,
Yesterday we drove outside the park and entered at Malelane gate and did some meandering around that area with brekkie at Afsaal which was its usual good quality.
I see here is a sign up saying that it has been taken over by Sanparks consequently there is not much in the shop, other than a few basic snacks type foods but the fast food section seems to be running as per usual and the coffee/hot chocolate bar doing a good trade.
We had some interesting Giraffe interaction with 2 young males sizing each other up and doing a bit of head bashing.
Then a fantastic Rhino sighting right next to the road, in fact we had to move when the 1 female walked right up to the side of the car and almost sniffed it!
Shortly after that Lions on a freshly made Impala kill.
Drove slowly along the S25 and almost at the end had another lone lioness cross the road right in front of us.
Strangely we only saw a total of 3 Ellies the entire day!
So once again the Leopard being the elusive one but we will find them.
After doing some shopping in Komatipoort we arrived back here to find that Lions were again seen on the river front but we could only find that1 of the reported 6 and she was lying flat out on the sand until it got dark.
But we did hear them on and off during the early evening as we sat out on the veranda.
Today we pack up at the lodge and start our trip up into the park, not too far to travel today, only as far as Skukuza tonight.
Will update further as the travels continue.

Micetta! :lol: :lol: :lol: I hope that is not the only Leopard that Elsa and family will see during this trip! :lol:

Lovely sightings during the day Elsa! And Rhino too! :clap: :clap:

At least you saw one of the 6 Lions, although a "flattie"! :dance: :dance:

Enjoy Skukuza tonight! Are you going to have supper at the Train Restaurant? (Can't remember the name now.) :thumbs_up:

Arrived at Skukuza, settled in our bungalow 152.
Had a brilliant lion sighting en route, lions lying right on the road and another very pretty one lying at the road side, so have stunning pics!
Nice Ellies as well, but that leopard is making it difficult for sure!!
We considered going to the Selati but decided against it, so T bone steaks for Jock and Klystron, and chicken on the braai for me tonight.
Pretty warm again today, upper 20's and clear skies.
Tomorrow it's off to Letaba.
