They finally got the Springbok up on the side of the road.

Only one of them then pulled the springbok to the shade of the tree where mom was still resting!

As they say in show business.......

That's all folks.........

By now I had a full blown Migraine!! But nothing in this world could get the smile from my face!!

We decided to leave the sighting (we actually thought of leaving earlier before the youngsters came down to fetch the kill) just so that the rest of the people could also enjoy a bit of this amazing sighting. Can't remember but I think by that stage there must have been 15 plus cars and not much space for all to have a nice view!!

I do hope you enjoyed the sighting with me!! Felt as if I was back there!! :wink:
