Cheetah with blue car

Cheetah with blue car

In March Sherry and I were visiting Kruger (it was one of our best trips from a sighting standpoint) and while driving from Skukuza to Lower Sabie, just short of the sunset dam, I noticed a line of cars ahead with something in front. As we got closer it turned out to be a Cheetah walking down the road. As we were the first car haeading toward Sabie I pulled over and we started shooting as the cat walked toward us and then slightly past us before moving off into the bush. It was a good day. The folks in the blue car may have been closer, but our view was better.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
