Had a lovely day in the park yesterday, drove from Croc Bridge up and around to B and Dal, had lovely sightings of general game, lots of ellies, rhinos and then as we arrived at the gate of B and D to pop in and say Hi to DB, a big traffic jam for a Cheetah sighting!
Must say that was not what I would have expected to see in that area but there it was, so by the time we had worked our way through the jam and got a look at the Cheetah we only just had time to make Malelane gate with about to 2 minutes to spare.
Today we are going to relax and see what comes down to the river to us.
Update later.

Elsa glad you are having a nice time, I agree B+ D area very strange to find Cheetah, so that was an unexpected sighting for you.

Hope you enjoy your Sunday relaxing, and hope something interesting wanders down to the riverbed.

Enjoy :gflower: :gflower: :gflower:

Not overall too much action on the river today but enough to keep us entertained.
Ellies , buff, waterbuck, crocs, Hippo ,lots of birds etc .
We had a nice pizza lunch and tonight a roast with all the trimmings eaten outdoors while a dagga boy forged in the reeds below.
Tomorrow we are going to try and make an early start into the park.
Hope you will all be ready and waiting before 6am.
