Africa 2016 – On Safari

April 21 – PM

Our first game drive was with our ranger Barney and ranger David who speak their native siSwati when talking to each other and English when talking to us. They are amazing and use a combination or tracks and dung to spot things.

10 minutes into our first dive we found a leopard sleeping in the Sand River bed.

Once the sun started to go down, he awoke and sauntered across the river.

We later saw a herd of elephants and two male lions on a kill (water buffalo)

Dozens of impala and other antelope things and then a stop for a gin and tonic in the bush before returning to dinner.

more to come….
