What would you regard as your ultimate sighting ?

Would be a leopard in a tree with a kill ?

A herd of over 200 Elephant ?

Lions Mating ?

Roan Antelope ?

A cheetah chasing its prey ?

People have seen a black Giraffe , White Lion or a wildebeest with 3 legs

Etc

I would like to know what you regard as your ultimate sighting . Please include when , which park , and location if possible .

If you can please include pics

Zeeman, my ultimate sighting was when a lioness opened my SO's (Elzet) door on the H1-4 during July 2000! :thumbs_up:

Herewith the picture just before she bit the door-handle and opened it:

My ultimate sighting of Kgalagadi is the Caracal in a fight with two Jackals about a prey and also the birth of a Springbok calf. :wink:

Eish, goeie genugtig, good heavens!!! I remember seeing that on YouTube and thinking, noooo, that cannot be the Kruger Park! When I heard the Afrikaans, I was baffled..maybe the car in front shouldn’t have wiped his braaivleis (bbq) hands on the door handle!! Ha ha ha. But yes, I would be terrified if that happened to me. When a lion stares at you in your car it is very intimidating and you really get respect for the king of the jungle. Man, I am looking forward to our trip in April!!! :dance:
