It was the driest I ever experienced the park,but it gave me the oppurtunety to see and photoghraph many predators and raptors in action.
Please join me in sharing all my amazing sightings through my lens. :dance: :dance: :dance:

We camped one night at Crocodile Bridge,two weeks at Satara and seven days at Lower Sabie.
On arrival at the gate,my first sighting was this beautiful Woodland Kingfisher.

We booked in and went for our first drive to Lower Sabie,and what a drive it was........ :dance: :dance:

To be continiued...... :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

Those Warthogs still seem to find something to eat. The Wildebeest is very thin RoelfA. :(

Could be a Hippo carcass? Not much left for the Vulture! :wink:

Great shot of the Swainson's Spurfowl! :clap: :clap:
