22nd March – Some Photo Highlights from the Weekend

Photo of the Day
Thumbela female leopard
Daily Synopsis
Greetings again!  Hope all of our South African readers had a great long weekend; and just to think that you all only have a four-day week ahead of you before another fantastic weekend!
I have not been adding my photos to the blog the last few days, so thought that I would dedicate a post to some of my photos from my sightings over the long weekend.  We had some very good game viewing, but the cloudy weather was not always conducive to good photography, hence my camera was kept a bit quiet! 
Again, rhinos featured prominently in our sightings, Kuhanya was her usual ever-present self near the lodge, Rockfig Jnr and Thumbela were see on Vielmetter again for the first time in a while, we had visits from the Mahlathini male lions, and even a  trip down south to see the Machaton lionesses! 
I will let the pictures do the speaking however...I hope you enjoy!
