Daily Synopsis.

Not having gone on morning drive I instinctively knew they would see something exciting. Funnily enough the day before I mentioned to the guys that it was going to be a "Dog Day", I had a feeling they would pop up sometime soon as they were long overdue a visit. So shoot me for being a day wrong, typical, Murphy's Law.

I'm going to let the pictures tell the story of our afternoon, but would like to add that we would not have got the great sighting we had of the Mahlatini's had it not been for what happened earlier. However we are still owed major Returns on our Wildlife Tax, well at least until my muscles stop hurting, that is!

Expect amasing things!


  1. HA HA!

    cant say i ever got stuck in the Nyosi...the Machaton, Nhlaralumi and a tiny mud wallow in the middle of nowhere, but not the Nyosi!!!

  2. but wait, that looks like crossing below entrance dam????

  3. That is the crossing below entrance dam! It was fun! and what a great sighting we had of the 3 lions!

  4. Wow - getting mud on your feet is worth that sighting!!
