Day 2 Safari – Continued.

Leopard just chillin’

We were incredibly fortunate to get a photo like this. To be so up close with the Leopard and comprehend its power.


A whole bunch of them!

Yeah, they were pretty curious. However, none of them came to say hello!

More Zebras!

Day 2 Safari – Continued.

The game drives are scheduled for early mornings (0600hrs) and in the late afternoons(1630hrs). This was the agreement amongst all the lodges in the area. It helps to ensure that the animals in Sabi Sands are not intimidated and that the cars do not wear out the roads. Furthermore, it was raining, making the track wet and muddy. If the game ranger felt that the dirt road was over used or not in the condition to drive on, he/she would take an alternate road, so as not to wear out the roads!

We managed to see water buffalos! We did not manage to get that close to them, but it was still wonderful to see them. They kept looking at us and eventually ran away because they sensed something was coming to get them. But it was not us, and neither did we find out what it was.

Whilst on the way back, there were Zebra dusting themselves off on the dirt road. The process is called dust bathing. Not too sure how it managed to stay clean after all that dusting though.

We came back from our morning game drive for a nice full breakfast and guess who was waiting for us!

This was the view from our lodge. Also, there was a heated ‘infinity’ pool for us to chill during the daytime!

Impalas! They were everywhere, and they were really cute creatures!

They are actually quite cute animals and they can run really fast!

So there we came across sleeping Lions.

It decided to get up for a while.

Just to take a whizz…

And go back to sleep..

Day 2 Safari – Sabi Sands

On the following day of the Safari, we managed to see the rest of the big 5! We saw lions, water buffalos and a leopard! Our tracker was amazing to spot leopard on from a far and we had to bush bash with our outlander to get to her!

Most of the road was on a track, and we bashed through the bush to get to certain animals!

One of the Lions that we managed to see. It was such a majestic creature.

And of course, there is always time to fold out a table, pour a drink and have some samosas in a Wildlife Park.

Leopard! And yes! We were that close to the her! She did not even care that we were there!

Leopard just chillin’ in a tree. You know, whatever.

Decided to follow it. Not sure if it was getting annoyed. The game ranger mentioned that if her cub was around, we were only allowed to stay for around 5minutes. Just as well, I was planning on getting ripped to pieces by a Leopard that day.
