Sure you must be wondering what has happened to the updates of late!
Sorry for the delay, will try and do a bit of a catch up.
The others did have a lovely long day in the park, had a picnic type lunch at Satara day visitors site and had Ellies come say hello.
Other than a inc big 5 sighting day with lots of extras.
We moved over to our other unit here at the lodge on Friday and were entertained by a big herd of Ellies feeding right on the bushes directly in front of us from late afternoon right up into the night, so special hearing their rumbles from such a close range and while we sit sipping on our sundowners .
Some bad news is that I somehow managed to wrench my knee and it swelled up quite dramatically necessitating a visit to the local doc, so I am now on medication of all sorts and not allowed to bend it too much.
Went in for a drive yesterday as we will again today and alto no cats we had some other wonderful sightings, so pretty happy at this stage.
Also have to fit in some shopping as well.
Further updates to follow.

Hi Elsa, thanks for the update, bad about your knee, just take it easy and look after it, a knee that injured is very painful, so I feel for you.

Hope you have great sightings today. Enjoy your drive. :gflower: :gflower:

Back from a wonderful day in the park, even tho we did our shopping first and only entered at around 11am in the end!
First up were 5 lionesses sprawled on the Gezantfombi dam wall, 2 more sightings on the S21, then another big group on the rocks above Lower Sabie
Then believe it or not as we exitted at gate closing the dam lions had now moved to the rocks next to the wall, so one can say it was a great "lion" day.
Plenty of other interesting sightings as well.
Also had a less than nice experience with a visitor who we saw with a pet monkey in a nappy in their car.
we reported them at Lower Sabie and later found them being grilled by 2 rangers as they tried to exit the park at CB!!
