Wednesday 10 March cont.
We left the Hippo Pools around 12.20 and were hopeful of sightings on the return trip to Berg en Dal via the S25 & S114, even though the temp was in the high 30’s.
Several hundred metres from the S25 two cars had stopped.
We were well rewarded with one of my favourite cats
No words needed for this magnificent Cheetah.
We spent 15 minutes watching and he spent most of this time in the shade.
Not much else to see on the trip to BnD and we retreated to our air conditioned bungalow.
4.15 we drove to Matjulu waterhole where we had arranged to meet Elzet, Theunis and their daughter Lene.
The Rhino were already there.
Pity about the rule breaker
Drive back to camp produced
We were back in camp by 6 and at 6.30 we were guests of Theunis, Elzet and Lene for a braai (BBQ).
They are one special family and I know we will get another chance to visit them in the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them and knew would meet up again on Thursday and Friday at Skukuza for the cricket.
The resident genet also paid us a visit while the braai was cooking.
