Thanks for all the comments guys!

Let me just explain some of the pictures as to why i posted them.

First picture is of the Egyptian Geese. If you look closely he only has one eye.

The elephant in the far back ground if you look closely at it there are Buffs in the river bed.

Now for the leopard sighting. We had been into the kruger for about 2 days with no leopard!! So the third day we decided to go to Lower Sabie. As we driving around the next corner HUGE Traffic Jam!! Leopard? NO Its lion in the river bed! We stayed on the out side of the traffic jam and then the next thing a female lion started running along the river bed. So i stuck my car into reverse and followed her. Now just before we saw her run an Indian chap stopped next to me and asked what we see and said lion. He did a u-turn and parked in front of my car. I even said to my lovely lady " why is he doing that the lions are behind him??" So into reverse i go and then i look up and this chap is flashing me GALORE!! BUT I MEAN FLASHING ME WITH HIS LIGHTS!! so i stop and put into first and go inches forward and hear my lady say LEOPARD!
:hmz: :hmz: now thinking to myself is she pulling a trick on me cause Leopards are my creatures "hers are ellies " or is there really a Leopard? Next think i look and there she is standing in the river bank looking worried.

The picture is after before the lion lying down.

Next thing she gets charged by the female lion that we were following. The leopard charged the other way and up the tree she went. The picture is the one were she is facing the tree backwards. She was watching the lions which were sitting under the tree she was in.

Very excited with what we saw! Next animal up was?? Yes another leopard just 3 km from the other one we saw!! It was awesome!!

Will post more pics soon

Have a great weekend everyone
