Welcome back all, thanks for joining me on the next diary entry.
Due to a busy workload here at the moment I am breaking the entries up to be by the half day. We had a great trip so there is plenty to see!
We also only have a week left with our tents to take bookings for our workshop in February as the camp puts the tents out to open bookings. So please do get in touch if you are after a place to come a see these amazing animals out in the wild and improve your photography.
Right, on with the show..
After a great start last night I had high hopes for the morning and I wasn’t disappointed.
We had some eager Cheetah lovers in the group so our first port of call was to catch up with one of the younger cheetahs first thing as there was a fair chance of morning hunting with all the game around.
We had to take a somewhat convoluted route around a small river to the other side as that was where Patrick and I were certain she was heading. So we took the calculated gamble and made our way around.
Always a slight gamble as if he decides to change direction we need to head back again. By the look though something specific had been spotted. Likely a young Gazelle.
Wonderful to see and a real treat. Not even through the second drive and we have Leopard and Lion cubs under our belts. Amazing! The Mara is fantastic for pulling me in despite the number of times I have been and all I have seen over the years.
We checked in with Charles over the radio and our Cheetah had settled under the bush so we decided to leave the two Leopards to their tricks and have some breakfast across the way.
And I’ll leave you on that cliffhanger there folks. Please do check back in the next day or so for the next update. See how the Jackals got on and how we managed on the rest of this day!
Thanks for stopping by folks, if you have been enjoying these posts please drop me a line on Facebook or twitter as I love getting your messages and it spurs me on to do more. Questions on any aspect of the trip welcome too! There is plenty more to come so check back often.
