This morning we drove the S100.
Right on the first couple of kilometres we observed a Baboon slowly waking up and enjoying the first rays of sunshine...

An Impala observed something that only he was able to see...Larger View
We only drove a couple of kilometres and were stopped by a Kruger roadblock.....Larger View
We had breakfast at Gudzani and from there headed north.
Once again we were stopped, but this time by a real traffic jam...
Soon we discovered the reason.
A second Lion appeared..Larger View
This one was very much interested in the cars that we driving to and fro...Larger View

The road was blocked and so we changed plans and turned around to drive back to Satara via Sweni Bird Hide....
On one of the Low water Bridges we spotted two Water Monitors...Larger View

And hose beautiful Candelabra TreesLarger View
While we stopped to take a pic of the trees, we saw a movement on the far side of the Low Water Bridge.....
A family of Warthogs appeared, so we switched off the engine and waited...Larger ViewLarger ViewLarger ViewLarger ViewLarger View
We just love Warthogs and they had been pretty relaxed..

Before we headed back to Satara, we decide to visit Nsemani Dam. There is always something to see.
And indeed there was a troop of Baboon eating the greenies in the water.Larger View
And drinking some water...Larger View
White faced Ducks were not too happy about the presence of the Baboons...Larger View
