The early morning pack up gets us all excited for what lies ahead. As we leave camp we spot a Grey duiker. I am not sure how often they are seen but for me this is a first
We see it’s bigger cousin!
and the biggest mammal of them all!
As we head on to the main roads it starts to get so busy.
A favourite spot for us is always the H12 bridge section. Somehow you always see a Kingfishers here.
Tragically Nkulu seemed like Adderly street in peak hour
, just to much for us. It is a long weekend and our favourite spots are completely overrun with 2 legged animals
. With a sheer feet of magical driving Ray manages to get through the traffic to get a brief sighting of a leopard!
Thankful that we are heading north tomorrow we decide to chill out at camp and check in early. Perimeter at Lower Sabie is always rewarding. We sit and relax while girls play around us. Within minutes they are running around with 5 newly made friends having a great time. My Monkey’s in a tree!
At about 16h00 we decide to go for a sunset drive to Sunset Dam
But first we head up the H10 for a bit. My youngest loved this little guy. She just wanted to take him home!
But she agreed that it was best to leave the lioness out of the car!!!
One of the best sunset shots you can take is looking back over the river towards Lower Sabie as the sun dips below the river. It is the true Africa.
As we are watching over the sunset dam we spot a bird using a hippo as a “surf board” ! Cool Dude!
We only had a few minutes till the gate closed but I had to fire off one of my favourite pictures of our trip. Instead of “Deer in the Headlights” it was” Elephants in the Headlights”
Lower Sabie at night is the one of the best camps to hear all the sounds of the bush. The girls were running around well after dark with their little headlights showing me where they were. Our fire was crackling, and my mouth was watering with the prospect of ribs on the fire....
What more could you ask for? Oh yes the nightly visit of the hyena. The kids couldn't wait to see her before we tucked them into bed and enjoyed a glass of wine while the fire died down. Can life get any better?
