Take control of my camera again while SO drives forward.....Leopard is walking parallel to the road

Image

I flag down an approaching car....

the guy says....."I have been driving around the whole f@#$%^& day looking for one and now find him"

SO was not impressed!!!!!!111111 :rtm: :rtm: :rtm:


A couple of parting shots

Image

Image

Image

Elated at a fantastic sighting.....probably our best or second best ever Leopard sighting (2 days 2 big 5 days)
we deprted the final gate.

The drive back ranks as my SOs worst driving experience in her life. We arrived at our accommodation with her a total wreck.

The amount of close calls, crazy overtaking, sudden stopping, turning in front of us etc etc etc
Bushbuckridge will not see us in the dark ever again!!!!!!!!!!!

28 September 2012 Phabeni gate to Berg-en-Dal

Tonight would be spent in the park, and tomorrow we will hit the road home to the Cape.

The route was to head down to Pretoriuskop then take the tar road to Berg-en-Dal.

Much of the land scape was fresh green with black tree stumps....pretty sight and great visiblity.....BUT, what happened to all the little critters and birds when these widespread fires passed through????? :cry:

first up...little one hanging on....

Image

Great impala ram in the future
