I finally get to see the Big 5+2 at Madikwe!


My recent trip to Madikwe was extremely hot...

The evening skies were spectacular, as was the game viewing.

I finally get to see the Big 5 in this special reserve.
This lioness was courtesy of Ranger Eugene from Makanyane

As was this Lion

And Eugene (and the bush) produced my first (proper) leopard sighting in Makanyane

This fellow would not turn around for me...

and eventually, bored with my flash, he wandered off into the bush

Cows with attitude?

NO, Buffalo...again spotted by Eugene.

This White Rhino sighting was thanks to Tsepang(Lucky) from Jaci's.

Thanks to Eugene for this...

and this...

The waterhole at Jaci's Tree Lodge was responsible for this...

and this.

Lucky found this Elephant, but the Impala photobombed the shot to get into a Big 5 posting!

Thanks to Eugene for this

and Lucky for this...

and this

and this as well...

This is the same pack, on a different day spotted by Eugene.
