They arrived safely at Orpen with 2 Ellies to meet them. The one on cam is probably one of them! :lol:

In her own words : "Absolute seventh heaven!"

Ellie, Giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, steenbok, duiker, kudu, warthog, tree squirrel, mongoose, 20 birds. Not bad for 4 hours.
Now enjoying a braai.

Just past the Olifants lookout, think it's the S44.
Counted about 14 of them.
My YR sighting, Johann, told me had had seen them round there the day before.
The lion kill was at Silolweni (sp) dam neat Tshokwane.

Some people said it was a pride of 14 and they were all watching another big male so we decided to pass the traffic jam and look for the rest of the pride further up the road.
We were lucky we found the buffalo and this male and four females and got a great sighting.
