Peeping Tom?

Peeping Tom?

After eating lunch at Tshokwane Sherry had an interesting experience while going to the ladies room. See photo one.

We headed north and spotted a leopard in a tree down near the river. The cat was quite some distance away, but the photos are not too bad. Hope you enjoy.
On this trip we saw and photographed 7 leopards in Kruger - five between Croc Bridge and Lower Sabie! But I like this one best.

Yes it is most certainly is an elephant, and a large one at that. While monkeys, Baboon and bushbuck are normal there this big guy was a surprise.

Ja - the picnic sites are unfenced so you could encounter anything when going to the toilets!

"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 Park...camp information.
