Welcome back anne-marie. I pity poor ecojunkie and her mates at this time travelling round KNP doing their work and the weather not good. Hope all the rangers and the animals survived the bad flooding.

Even though it ended rather suddenly, it sounds like a great trip EJ. Look forward to some more pics once you are rested and recovered . . . .

Did a sunset drive for BnD tonight. Limited choice of route!!!! Still had a good time with impalas, scrub hares, giraffes, zebs (a special request from one lady - and we got them twice!), buffalo, lots of rhinos, 2 separate genets, 2 spotted eagle owls, lots of nightjars......

Thought the ellies might be visiting when I got home, but no sign of them. We are trying to make sure all marulas on the outside of the fence to discourage them now. Fortunately the season seems to be almost over.

The drive was for just 4 guests, and was relatively quiet. We started with a small herd of zebras, and then had impalas, scrub hares, rhinos a-plenty, ellies, hippos.....and lots of nightjars. On my way home I had a white-tailed mongoose and spotted eagle-owl.

Great drive Ecojunkie! The White-tailed Mongoose certainly was a super sighting, as was the Spotted Eagle-Owl! All the other animals as well! I think you had a lovely drive! :clap: :clap:

Did a night drive last night......fairly quiet for most of the time. We found a nice grouping of impalas and zebs that we spent some time with, also scrub hares, hippos, and plenty of nightjars, plus duikers and steenbok. The highlight though was coming across a young male lion (still something of a mohican mane) lying on the road. He was a bit skittish though and moved into the grass, but still close enough to get good views and some of the guests got good photos from their higher view point. A short while later we found a lioness coming towards us on the road.....she was much more cooperative, and I was able to turn the vehicle and we followed her for a while.

Tonight I was supposed to be doing a bush braai, but Raymond called me a short while ago to ask me to do a night drive instead.

Lovely sightings once again Ecojunkie! The Lions surely were hair raising sightings for your guests! :clap: :clap:

Would you prefer to do the Bush Braai? Or is the night drive more to your liking? I think both are superb! :dance: :dance:
