Lovely big elephant herd, honey badger, serval, African wild cat, hyena pups, 2 leopards, lioness (shame that she appeared to be badly injured) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Great that you get to spend some time with your granddaughter in such a marvelous place, enjoy!!

What a wonderful sunset drive with such a great variety of animals with awesome pictures impyim! A big herdof Ellies in a hurry, a very busy Honey Badger, Hippo, cute little Hyenas and to top it all, Leopard in a tree! Then there are more that you didn't get pictures of! A very successful drive I would say! :clap: :clap:

:gflower: to your Granddaughter and friend. With young people like that, we can feel happier about the future.

That really was a superb night drive. You were rewarded with marvelous sightings. :thumbs_up: I loved the Honey Badger. I am sure that it gave moments of good entertainment... as for the Hyenas...very, very cute.. in a Hyena kind of way.

:popcorn:

impyim, most enjoyable TR and just love those adorable lions cubs in the previous episode. :D :D :D

I managed to get a late ticket for the drive on the truck. :D
I agree, that herd of elephant was quite sizeable and must have been excellent to watch. :dance:

You had some great sightings on your drive - honey badger, hippos and then a leopard - WOW. :clap: :clap: :clap:

The last time we went on a sunset drive at Satara, it started to rain mid way and it became quite cold and unpleasant, but managed to enjoy it anyway. :D
