Thanks Anne Marie, jaffles, Umtali1, Jan van Wyk, Hilda and Friedrich von Horsten for showing your appreciation and comments. Wish we could have shared the experience as well.

Friedrich..... this group appeared to be the mother with four large cubs and was sighted at Dalkieth.

We later sighted this mother with two younger cubs at 13th Borehole.........

Image

Followed by this lone male at Bataluma attempting a springbok kill (sorry, but it happened so fast, these are all I could catch on camera).......

Image

Image

Image

Image

We left him resting at the roadside and continued on to Kamqua.....

Image

However, on our return later that afternoon, we found him with a fresh kill under the tree adjacent to the waterhole......

Image

What a day!!!!!!!

Thanks again Hilda, Friedrich, Jan van Wyk and Katja for your appreciation and comments. It was indeed a privilege to visit KTP again and to be able to share those experiences with others through this media.

Thanks Katja for your contribution to possibly identify these sightings. The following additional inserts hopefully will assist to verify your findings:

The possible Hanri and her two cubs..........

Image

And a closeup of the one I assumed was a male but could well be Lisette.....

Image

Hope this helps and thanks again for sharing

AVIATION IN ITSELF IS NOT INHERENTLY DANGEROUS, BUT TO AN EVEN GREATER DEGREE THAN THE SEA,
IT IS TERRIBLY UNFORGIVING OF ANY CARELESSNESS, INCAPACITY OR NEGLECT.
