Next up: Day 3 and 4 together.... This consisted of very few sightings as it poured with rain most of the day
But things get really heated from day 5! I will be doing day 3 and 4 together
@ Zettie - Thank you, not anywhere near purfect yet, but hey, that's what practice is for!!
@ FC - Once again, it was just luck with the pythons, they were all crossing the road so were very difficult to miss
Considering the length of the grass and the heat I was very surprised by the number of leopard sightings I had on this trip, just luck I guess. But Biyamiti private road remains my favourite road in the park for leopard, the key is persistance, sometimes we just drive up and down this road, but ultimately we always find at least one spotted beauty!
@ Lowveldboy -
@ Fenwickh - Thank you so much for all your kind comments!
@ Rookie2009 - I agree, I have never seen as many Scrub Hares in KNP as around Biyamiti this year! Thank you for joining my TR
@ Mi - Oh my goodness but you really do make me laugh
I hope you haven't put some sort of curse on me and I end up marrying a troll
@ Zettie - I will PM you with the recipe asap
@ Son godin - thank you
That is exactly where I saw Scrub Hares every morning and every evening, there was usually one but sometimes it mate would be sitting with it! What a treat!
@ Katja - I actually saw lots of snakes on my trip python x4; Black Mamba x2; Boomslang x1; Cobra (don't know which one) x1; and one small one which I could not identify! Thank you for always being such a lovely asset to my TR, you are so kind!
