Got to the gate 3rd in line at 5.50 yesterday, still a little gloomy but with all our eyes scanning we hoped not to miss anything.
Lots of the general game on the plains just in from the gate as per usual and also a little black blacked jackal .
Then the S28 delivered us a wonderful sighting of not one but 2 Cheetahs. Sat with them for about 20 minutes before another car arrived .
Without going into too much detail which I will cover when I am home and doing the report proper, we had a big 5 day plus the Cheetah so pretty successful.
Then to top it off we got a report to say there was a leopard in the reeds right in front of our unit at Ngwenya.
Our neighbours then informed us that there had also been 2 lions there during the day as well!
The grass in the park is still long but starting to die down, so hopefully the sightings will continue to improve .
We plan to go in shortly for another drive .

Elsa it sounds like you had a wonderful day, the leopard and lion in front of your chalet always happens when you're out, happened to us too.

My goodness Elsa, leopard and lion below your chalet, we never have such luck in Dec. Sounds like you had a great day in KNP yesterday.

Hi everyone,
Today was a stay here day as we looked after the grandies while the others went in for a full day drive .
Nice to relax and let the various wildlife come to you.
Had Ellies , buff, waterbuck, Impala, hippos etc in front to entertain us.
Tomorrow we will go in, have a brunch type meal, then come out mid afternoon as we have a friend dropping by for a braai with us.
Will keep you posted.
