Day 25 Skukuza (8 of 15) May 5

Short morning drive, Maroela loop (S83) yielded very little, had breakfast at Skukuza day visitors site. Temperature peaked at 36 C today.

Afternoon drive to Nwaswitshaka water hole ( S65) where we added a Klipspringer to our mammal list, went on to Renosterkoppies dam (25.12330 S, 31.60591 E) where we found a mating pair of lion. Only our second sighting of lion this trip. Photo opportunity not good, light fading and far off but enough to get a photo to show that lions are not extinct in the park. Normally at this stage of a trip we would have seen a pride of lion a day, Leopard and Cheetah, just shows how difficult conditions are with the grass so long. Zebra and Wildebeest are normally abundant, we have gone days without seeing any. They might have migrated north, we will see we we head for Letaba next week.
