Then we moved into our tent at Lower Sabie. We had asked for no 27. It really has a great view but needs some maintenance. When we arrived, the sink was clogged and the bathroom door did not close. That was fixed after our complaint but the overall condition still could use some improvement.

When we left the camp for our morning drive, we had no idea that this was going to be the best day of our trip and that the morning drive would end at 6 pm. Already our first sighting was a first in KNP for us, a black-shouldered kite

No idea what it was about this bush. He was not scratching and simply seemed to lean against it.

After breakfast we turned on the S 25 again since lions were spotted there earlier. Actually we were told that there was supposed to be a lion behind a tree trunk. Of course, we could not spot it and decided to move on as wild dogs were also seen on the road. Fortunately, they were still around

When the dogs had left, we went to hippo pools again. This time Daniel was around and we could go on the walk which was another first for us

Right after we turned on the H 4-2 again, three cars were parked at the side of the road. They were looking at a cheetah. We looked for a spot and could only see this
