Well, it's finally time for the final part of this Trip Report!
We left at about 8. The plan was to go to Lake Panic and leave at the same gate we entered.
The first thing we saw was our first big herd of buffalo.
After that we saw a few wildebeests...AND THEN!
I was staring out of the window on my right when I suddenly saw a leopards face with his tongue hanging out! I shouted leopard and my dad stopped and reversed as fast as he could. By the time we reached the spot of the leopard all we could see were a few moving spots and then, after a few seconds, all the spots just disappeared. A few cars stopped but didn't see anything so they just went on again. We waited and drove up and down for about 10 minutes, but thenwe had to accept he was gone, without a photo
But it still felt great to have spotted a leopard! Only my third one ever.
We wanted to have lunch at I think Renosterkoppies. On our way we saw:
A whole family of ground hornbills, including one with a black beak (juvenile?). I've heard they only lay one egg every so many years. That's so strange...
At Renosterkoppies(??) we had lunch and on our way up we saw three klipspringers!
After lunch with a beautiful view we headed for Skukuza golf club again and saw this group of kudu's.
We had a quick toilet break at the golf club and went to Lake Panic for the last time. I'll just post a few photo's of what we saw there.

Because we were running out of time we had to leave!
On the way to the gate we did see kudu, buffalo, steenbok and impala as a nice goodbye present
And so we left the park.
Hopefully we will be back next year, but that's not very likely...so I'm glad I enjoyed this year!
Thank you all for reading and thanks for all your comments!
