On our final afternoon drive we headed back to Thandi and her cub on the kill. It was a hot afternoon and they we lying in some tall grass. Once it cooled down, Thandi came to a small pan and drank some water before she headed back to the kill and climbed a nearby tree. This was a sighting many of our guests had hoped for.
We then decided to head to Lilly Pond to see if we could find some hippos to photograph at eye-level. We found three hippos there and everyone enjoyed getting some shots while lying on their bellies. We enjoyed our last sundowner stop together and took some photos of the almost full moon. On our way hoe we found another flapped-necked chameleon and a majestic giant eagle owl. We then had a wonderful braai/barbecue together.
On our final morning drive we decided to follow up on some calling lions but they had left our boundary. We then checked on Thandi and found her, with her kill, in the same tree. We got some shots of her tail and feet hanging from the tree. The cub was nowhere to be seen.
We left Thandi and decided to see if we could find some cheetah on the open areas in the north and drove some large loops. Unfortunately we did not find any cheetah but got some images of some general game before we headed back to camp for a final brunch before we checked out.
We will be back in Djuma for our next back to back #BigCatPhotoSafaris in just 12 days. We have a few spaces open for our June trips (09-13 June and 13-17 June 2018). Please enquire soon to avoid disappointment.
