We were a group of friends who wanted to sleep over at the hide. My SO and I took the S131 and saw this nesting vulture and chick.
I have mentioned the poor turtle and the great sunset from the hide itself.
One feels much closer to nature than in a camp. No other noices than your own group's. We didn't hear any lion or heyena, but still it was an enjoyable evening.
We left for Shingwedsi the next morning. We saw quite a lot of
kudu and giraffe. The veld is dry and the mopani leafs are falling now. Even saw a giraffe browsing on a mopanitree.
We decided to take the S50. Lots of ellies and few buffs. Then, the highlite of this visit: It took me 18 years to see this again:
We saw this beaty at the Tihongonyeni windmill. With the Roan, there were ellies, kudu, Zebbies and Tsetsebe at the windmill!!
We arrived at Shingwedsi just in time to hear the Boks doing it for a change. The impalalillies in Shingwedsi are breathtaking beautifull and so large! Some of tham are approx 8 feet high.
The big cats did not disappoint on Sundaymorning. We counted 13 of them, and we didn't see the males.
A great weekend and are planning the next one already.
