We neither BB :wink: . Were at Satara for 4 nights and no lions on S100 which we drove 3 times (only to get to the S41) :evil: .

I think it is the fact that we leave early and come back close to closing time that we missed the birds at the shop at Pkop :hmz: . Saw some brown-headed parrots in front of our bungalow though :whistle: .

I know they must be there BB, but they hide from us! I get so jealous of other people's wonderful sightings at places that we visited round about the same time, but missed out on, for instance, the Turaco, or even Roan or Sable! But maybe one day our luck will change, and will see all of them, plus a Trumpeter Hornbill when up North! :thumbs_up:

It took my dad 50 years, and quite a few visits to see his first leopard.

Lions on the S100 is a myth.

Purple Crested Turaco on the other hand I've seen a few times. The latest was in a tree right overhead when waiting for a slow puncture to be fixed at the local garage in Skukuza Camp. Have also seen them ply overhead whilst 'cooling off' in the Skuks 'pond'.

Your old man must've loved the bush to keep going for 50 years. And some terrible timing to wait that long for his first Pantera Pardus.

In Sept we saw Serval on a night drive at Satara and then that night a AWC walked straight past our dinner table as we were munching away on some braai food. the picture will soon appear. You'll see it soon when the SO's TR calles Moms & 'Mites on a mission in KNP.
