Is this an ordinary South African sunset?

Look carefully before continuing…

Our first day in Kruger National Park and second Game Drive produced this sighting just before sundown

To sight a leopard in such an exposed spot is a very rare occurrence, so we have been told.

Totally aware of our presence the leopard barely moved a muscle.

For those who know Kruger we did make it back to camp before the gates closed….just.

Tish Farrell, asked me to give her love to Africa. I have done so, Tish….and I have also expressed my love for Africa, over and over again in the few days we have been here.

Dear old Brandy did not think it appropriate that he had to push his head through the bottom of a bucket for six weeks.  It was all in a good cause. He had an infected eye and earned himself the nickname of ‘Buckethead’ during this time.
