Thanks Cape of Storms,
I just can say the S100 was very "rich" for us this trip.... you will see in another story later on why :wink: :wink:

Hi AAT, I have just found your TR and am thoroughly enjoying each of your stories. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: Your pics are fantastic :cam: There are no words for the luck you have made for yourselves and I can't wait for the next one. Hopefully we will have some of your luck in July at Satara. :clap: :clap:

Thanks Pumbaa,
I realized they were walking in front of me and was thinking about going along them, but they were spread all over the road all time. But I was so happy the see them and enjoying every minute. Will follow your report being curious about your sightings :wink: :wink:

WoW Aat,

what awesome lion encounter and what a private show it was only for you :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

You are right when staying at Satara you never know in which direction to drive as normally everywhere something to be seen but that day you took the right decision :dance: :dance: :dance: A pity was that they walked away from you and not the other way round although the curious youngster was a brilliant poser :clap: :clap: :clap:

Looking forward to more of such stories :popcorn:

Hey Aat,

What can I say but "WOW" awesome pictures. I haven't been to Kruger yet, so I am enjoying these pictures. I hope I get to see some cool stuff like that when I get out there.

Thanks for sharing.

Larry

Thanks Chip,
I can't deny we have had a lot of luck during our trips. We always go to find tuskers and on the side we find other animals that's the whole "secret" :lol: :lol: :lol: So...never go out with the idea or goal to find lions or cheetah or.... just go out and feel happy en lucky to be in kruger ... that attracts the animals ...hope it works :wink: :wink:

llytel, thanks !
Time to book for kruger :) :)
Just one warning...if you go once you will be an addict when you leave...
Go to kruger and don't expect too much but enjoy every drive and let kruger surprise you :?

What an awesome sight :clap: :clap:

Of course you would want to sing at the top of your voice :)

I am surprised you weren't dancing too :dance: :dance: :dance:

I would hate to tell the other car what they missed...shame :(

Thanks Sharifa :gflower:
My singing is not that great but using it to get the animals quiet for a second and make them looking with big eyes to capture them.
If I am going to dance for them I think I get 14.786 elephants chasing me , 32695 buffalo chasing me and the leopards will hide in the trees for at least one month.... so I better do not try :lol: :lol: :lol:
