In the hour that we were traveling we saw 4 of the Big 5.
At Ngotso north on the tar road to Satara we had 2 huge male Lions with a few Lionesses cross the road, unfortunately they were heading in the direction of the rising sun, which made photography challenging. We did not spend time there as we wanted to secure a site.
Afternoon drive to Girivana S40, Letties favourite waterhole, a large croc and a Hippo have moved in. Elephant, Baboon, Waterbuck, Impala, Zebra, Wildebeest also seen there.
On the way back, at Nsemani dam, we saw a huge herd of Buffalo.
A good start to our stay at Satara.
Met up with Corrie and Leonora who we made friends with last year, Kim you will remember them.
Chris B from Phalaborwa also came to greet us, it’s great to see and renew acquaintances again.
