Our second game drive was an early morning game drive with our guide “Lucky”, after a slow start in light drizzle our luck changed when we came upon Lion tracks at the side of the trail, Lucky thought they were fresh so we followed them slowly until we spotted a male Lion in the bush some 300 meters away. This was a big cat sitting proudly and surveying his area.
We were now driving in wet and windy conditions, but the fleece lined poncho’s provided by the lodge kept us dry and warm. The next big sighting was a Leopard moving in the short bush grasses, only a short lived sighting but worth the wait. The sighting of game just came coming, including a superb pair of Rhinos and a large troupe of elephants. A Buffalo completed our list of the “Big Five” and we returned to camp with some wonderful memories.
