LIVE UPDATE from our #BigCatPhotoSafari to Sabi Sand, South Africa.
By Specialist Photographic Guide Lance van de Vyver.
Yesterday afternoon we headed out in search of leopards. On the way we stopped to take some images of the small Nkuhuma cubs before we headed to a jackal carcass which was hanging in a tree.
There was no leopard close to the carcass but we were lucky and bumped into female leopard Thandi nearby. She was lying up in some grass and was not very active. After sunset, however, she became mobile and headed to Buffelshoek Dam. The dam is dry though so she turned and started heading west towards camp. We left her as she entered a very thick block.
This morning we went out and stopped at the elephant carcass. There were between 15 and 20 hyena and about 50 vultures still there. They were all very full and not as actives as the previous few days but we still managed to get some stunning shots of them interacting.
We then heard that Hosana had been found at Treehouse Dam and made our way there. He was lying on a bank fast asleep but eventually woke up and sat nicely for a few images.
After a great farewell from Hosana we stopped for coffee before heading back to camp, seeing a Rhino on our way. We will be back in Sabi Sands in 4 weeks and still have some spaces available – book below!
