Duma Tau, Day 1

On our 1st game drive we saw a bunch of giraffes, elephants, birds, red lechwe, impala, kudu and 2 male lions. It was getting dark when we saw the 2 boys so my pictures aren't that good but they were going to cross the river when all of a sudden they stopped. They just sat there in the water and looked. Then there was some ripples in the water and hippos popped up. Lucky they stopped or they would have gotten it by the hippos. The hippos just sat there and wouldn't let them cross. They decided to turn back and we followed them for a bit. Then it was back to the lodge for dinner.

Duma Tau, Day 2

Afternoon Drive

The 2nd day at Duma was great, we saw 2 different leopards, Romeo, the male lion, 2 lioness that killed a kudu with 1 cub and an african wild cat. I accidently deleted the picture so it isn't on here. We also saw many beautiful birds, baboons, lots of elephants, hippos, giraffes, zebras and so much more. We followed the 1st leopard through thick brush, we spent about an hour doing that. On our way back to camp we stopped and they set up lunch in the bush for us. Sonja and I tried Pimms and lemonade which became her favorite drink(accidently deleted that one too). On the night drive we were on our way back to camp and we smelled a foul smell. We stoppped and they spotted a big male leopard in the bush. he was eating a baboon. We went out later that night with one of the other guides to find the leopard again but we couldn't find him.
