This morning we decided not to go out to early seeing that the light in the early mornings aren't that good.
So we leave camp at about 7h00 the morning Taking the H1-1 H3 up to kwagas pan and back not that long drive but all for good reason and the So started not feeling well
But yet again a very exiting drive
So out the gate we go and again we are welcomed into the untamed by this littel guy they are all round the camp this time of the morning
As we drive up towards Shitlhave dam going up the hill WHAAAAT in the road
Had to take this picture thru the windshield but I got it it moved of the road and gone we could see a few more in the bush but was only shadows
What a great sighting so early in the morning it can only get better seeing that I have never seen them in the KNP before
So Over the hill we go and about 2km down the road we see a car standing next to the road all by it self as we get close we can see this old oomie checking something out with his nearcomebyes mmm stifneck Ok thaths what I thought at first. So i pull up ''More oom wat sien oom?"Ek dink n luiperd" he replys
With only tree in the area I pull out the nearcombyes and look what do I see Can you see it ?
So I informed the oomie that it is only a Kill in the tree but I am sure he will be in the area seeing that it still looked fresh .As wee are having a chat that he might return the SO slaps me and the back and goes KYK KYK KYK and this is what happens
So he just checked out his Breakfast and went and did the lazyhorse thing
By this time there was about 10-15 cars around and it looked like he wasn't going to move so we decided to move along what a good thought as we get around the bend just before Shitlhave dam I coming across the road from right to left about 100m in-front of us as I look closer I can not believe my eyes another first time ever .As we get closer It moves of into the long grass
and this is the only picture the SO could manage
of the Serval
At the dam Hippo
On the Napi boulder route we see this proof that this is the wild
Just after that this Could it have been one of their family members?
Then some macdonalds
On our way back to camp seeing that the SO started feeling Ill the following
Check out my tooth
This guy get breakfast ready
These Hornbils being the perfect models
Close up of those beautiful lashes
This Guy begging for his food
So as we get to camp earlier that expect where the SO said she is going to lye down seeing that she does not feel well I decided to do the thing that most of us do. Go check out the birds in the camp. As the little Ranger have made some friends in the camp already she was not bothered that we came to camp earlier .
The following was seen
Outside the camp fence
Al of a sudden as I am walking around having some me time I can here some commotion going on in the camping area I make my way there quick see that the Little Ranger is there with her friends and the So sleeping as I get close to see what is going on this big guy has come to reveal his powers Right next to the fence and yes he was in must as well
Here is a video I took of this big guy breaking the Fence
down minutes later the Rangers was there and they made sure he moved away from the fence as they shot a few blanks of to make sure he does not come into the camping area .
So I had my excitement for the day and yes that is my little one you can here all the time in the vid
