June 3 – Orpen to Skukuza

I was on the road shortly after 6:00 am as usual. What was not usual was my first sighting. Just a few minutes from camp 3 male Lions walked across the road and lay down right beside it. One was so close to the road that I was afraid his tail was on it and… Continue reading June 3 – Orpen to Skukuza

June 1 – Orpen

It was pretty chilly this morning, but the 3 of us on the drive along with the guide were hopefully of some great sightings. Unfortunately, it was just the usual critters and not actually many of them. Elephant, Bushbaby, Zebras, Impalas, Wildebeests, Giraffe and then Warthogs as we were almost back at camp. The only… Continue reading June 1 – Orpen

May 31 – Talamati to Orpen

I heard the Lion roars early this morning again, so was up and heading out shortly after 6:00 am. I did not find the lions. There was a little bit of fog in places, but thin little lines of it while everything else was clean. The picture almost looks like water. Today I only saw… Continue reading May 31 – Talamati to Orpen

Unfortunately, I was the 2nd car in the lineup, so my pictures were taken through the… Continue reading May 30 – Talamati

May 26 – Tamboti

It was a very foggy morning and this time, it didn’t go away when the sun rose. First sightings after my foggy morning picture from my deck, but too dark and foggy to take pictures were a single male Impala, Helmeted Guineafowl road block, herd of Impalas, tiny mouse running across the road and some… Continue reading May 26 – Tamboti

May 8 – Pretoriuskop

The moon was beautiful last night with some clouds floating by it. I got an extra early start this morning after waking up at 4:30 am, but I had a great sleep, interrupted only by the sounds of Hyaenas and lions about a 1/2 hour earlier. I could hear cars going by shortly after 5:00… Continue reading May 8 – Pretoriuskop

Chester

Chester went for his blood tests yesterday.  We won’t get the results back until next week and at that time we will know if we have to make any changes to his meds.  I hope we’re on the right path and he can just continue as he is. We had a little photo shoot in… Continue reading Chester
