Follow this topic to get recent sightings from the Phabeni game drives. you don't have to stay in the park to enjoy the nocturnal activities' in kruger park' this activities' are exclusively' for the people' staying in hazyview' lodges and surroundings' you can still come in as a day visitor' and later' on extend your stay by booking a game drive' at Phabeni gate'

Many people that are familiar with the S1-S3,S4-S65 route will agree with me that; these are few of the best route in the park to consider if you are a wild dog and leopard fan'

Stay tuned for recent update' from the game drives taking place every night all year round.

be blessed'

:yaya: Bridgeman, welcome back to the forum, haven't seen you around for a while. Phabeni gate is a long way from Olifants.

Looking forward to all your sightings. :lol:

Hi Bridgeman :D

so pleased to see you around here again. If I remember correctly you were in Olifants, but maybe my memory has stalled a bit. Anyway, I think this is fantastic 8)

Sunset Drive 25/06/2012.

This is one of the game drive's that will stay in my memory card lol for a long time' "not" because we saw everything we wanted to see but because of the 9members of Samonson family; very nice people to be around with' 3hours felt like' 2minutes' *smiling*

The highlight of the drive was to see the buffalo herd crossing the road; as we all watching and getting all exited' one of the kids sitting at the back' shouted' "daddy look at that one" as we were all curious to know what she saw' oooop' a female buffalo giving birth' and we were all woooow' something you don't see often' unfortunate' all the buffalo's went through the long grass' and we couldn't see the whole birth process.

2km from the buffalo's just before nyamundwa dam' 2lioness from nowhere walked in to the road' in front of us(right place at a right time). We drove behind them for almost a km and a half' until we had no choice but to disturb them and pass' the rest of the drive was more of the general game' but the white tail mangoos, Civets and Genets were also there to entertain' us'

a Total of 3/5(big 5) was seen the whole drive, Lions, buffalo's and Elephants' not bad at all'

Looking forward to the next one'

To see any animal giving birth must be amazing. What a sighting.

Great when you have good guests.

Goodness Bridgeman 8) how fantastic is that :D

It seems that you were also sharing it with some really super people and that makes all the difference.
