Just after these shots were taken I headed off to the airport to pick up some new safari guests.
Gary and Julie are on their second safari with us and I was pleased to say that they brought their usual luck with them. On their first evening drive in Thaba Tholo we came across a beautiful male leopard, just 200m from Black Leopard Camp. We sat with him for around 20mins, before heading back to camp to quickly view Gary's photographs over a drink before dinner.
They have headed off to the Kruger National Park today escorted by our guide Conrad. I know that they were torn between the excitement of the next stage of their safari and hoping not to miss out on a leopard capture while they are away from Thaba Tholo.
We’ll see what happens, over the next weeks trapping. If their luck holds out then they will have the experience of a life time when they come back from the low veld. Because (as ever) our guests have a chance to ‘BE INVOLVED’.
