It has been a while since I've done a trip report. As I sat looking through all the pics we've taken since I got my new camera in March for my birthday, the urge just came to do a photographic report again. It just feels wrong not to share what we have seen up to now....

Thank you so much for your comments Kaapsedraai and Tent dweller. Hyenas are one of my favourite animals. The zebras also have such charm, I cannot help taking pics of them :wink:

Another favourite of mine
Image
Image
3Km from Balule, we found a pride of 12 lions on a giraffe kill. We spend the afternoon with them and with only a few cars there, it was very entertaining watching how they interact around the carcass. I used a full set of batteries in that 4 hours, and we had to go to Olifants to get more.
Image

Image
A helicopter flew over us a couple of times, and this lioness were trying to figure out what it was…

And then back to the lions. It was now a bit cooler and they became more active…. That is now in active eating …
Image

Image
Patiently waiting…
Image
I am too full to sit up, so I will just hold on to the giraffe and continue eating while taking a nap in between
Image
The next morning we left Balule at gate opening time to see if they are still there. We found them less than 1km from camp in the road. .
Image

Image

Image
They were very energetic
Image

Image
This young one climbed into a tree, and waited for one of his family members to walk pass. He then jumped onto him or her and then went back into the tree until the next one arrived, repeating the exercise. It was such a pleasure watching him play like that. Image

Image
And at the carcass the hyenas and vultures moved in
