I have 2 photos that are near and dear to my heart.

This was on the S100, September 2008. Lions had taken down a buffalo and there wasn't much left when we got there. It was very crowded but we managed to get an excellent spot. One lioness was sitting on the ribcage licking the last few bits of meat off the bone. We could hear the rasping of the tongue. The male lion was near the head of the buffalo guarding his prize. He put his head on his paws for about 4 seconds and I was lucky enough to get the shot. We returned 2 years later and the horns were still there.

The second image is from Kgalagadi - August 30, 2012, Leeudril waterhole. Cagn caught an African Wild Cat. There were about 8 or 10 vehicles there. All the details are in my trip report

For me, it is impossible to have only one favourite. But I have three favourites of our December 2013 visit to Kruger. No 1. 3 young Elephants, I took the photo from the fence at Berg-en-Dal. Then a young male lion on Christmas morning just outside Lower Sabie in the road (Our Christmas gift) and last but not least on the 28th December the big bull Hippopotamus at Lower Sabie Rest Camp drove a young bull out of the herd.

Only a pleasure Phokojwe. There's some stunning moments photographed by other forumites. All of them with a special story attached! Me and my old "mik-en-druk" end up taking thousands of photos on each Kruger visit and I cherish them all :redface:
