July 3
Time to leave the park at Phalaborwa via Mooiplaas Water hole, Mopani and Letaba. No Leopard, Cheetah or Rhino to wave us out :cry: . :hmz: I think the 3 are all migrating animals :whistle: , because they have been frequently seen in the South, but we didn’t saw them in the North :evil: :evil:
But nevertheless we won’t complain. On our way out we saw plenty. Off course Impala, a Red crested korhaan near Mooiplaas water hole, and also a decent amount of Kudu. Also 2 herds of Giraffe, 3 different herds of Hippo, several herds of Ellie, 2 different Southern ground hornbills sightings and a beautiful Saddle-billed stork. :thumbs_up:

:oops:
Oh yeah almost forgot, the usual sighting of the last 3 days :wink: Lion again…… The fourth day in a row….. Lions………… :shock:
No, the fourth day in a row Lionesses :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance: Usually we see Lions/Lionesses every trip to the Kruger :redface: But we never saw Lions four days in a row 8)

We left the park at 12h30 with sadness. We know we will come back for good, but still… :cry: :cry:

Regards Cees & Corina
