Love your photos Ekoppen.

I was just thinking that the S100 delivers again!!! We have had some really amazing sightings there.

Have you not had much luck on this stretch of road Annemarie?

I'm sorry anne-marie that you haven't had better luck on S100. Believe me I'm not gloating because it can change at any time, but here's our scorecard on S100.

Cheetah mom and 5 cubs
Cheetah coalition-4males
Big herd of 86 Elles walking directly east, on S100
At least three or more prides at separate times in ambush mode on the north side of the road
Leopard with two young kittens
Flock of 20 plus dancing Ostriches
Miscellaneous Lions, one's and two's and picnicking with the "two brothers" (Lions) :big_eyes: just outside our open car windows

ekoppen, incredible sightings :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: also unusual sightings. The ostriches must have been quite something to watch. Not quite Swan Lake, but entertainment non the less.
