Another early morning start, and when we arrived at the main lodge, the rangers and trackers were excited to tell us that overnight the lions has tracked down a buffalo and managed to bring it down about 12 km away from the lodge, not far from the main entrance of Sabi Sands.
Everyone was keen to get going to ensure that we would be able to see the lions with their kill.
Before we left the lodge, Cameron spotted this Foam Nest Frog sitting on a log.
After a photo of the frog, we got into the jeep and made our way towards the lions. Right near the main gate of Sabi Sands, and conveniently right beside the track, the lions lay near the buffalo they brought down the night before.
We also saw
Leopard (Phil's favourite)
This is also the area that was hit by the electrical storm that we viewed from Bongani a few nights earlier. Some of the trees were still smouldering a bit.
There was a huge amount of different birdlife this morning.
Cape Turtle Dove
Fiery Necked Nightjar
Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill
African Fish Eagle
Emerald Spotted Dove
Black-headed Eastern Oriole
African White-backed Vulture
African Green Pigeon
It was a fantastic morning drive.
