JUNE 2011 Photo Safari - Kruger, Mala Mala, Big Cat Reserve

Many thanks to Slim & Barbara for making their 6th photo safari with WILD4 !!

What another super tailor made safari we had, broken down into 6 nights in the Kruger Park at Satara Camp, followed by 3 nights at MALA MALA where we had some of the best Leopard sightings yet !!, then back to Kruger for 4 nights at Bergendal in the south where we were lucky to watch how quickly vultures can devour a male Kudu - recorded time of 1 hr 30 mins - just bones were left.

Finally we spent 3 nights at the Big Cat Reserve where we enjoyed shooting the Cheetah, Leopard and a new Caracal !!

Many thanks to Kurt, our ranger at Mala Mala and Jaco, our ranger at the Big Cat Reserve, especially for arranging the Caracal shoot at sunset !!

All the very best to everyone and warm regards from the WILD4 team.

Next trip begins on Monday so look out for the June / July trip report to follow soon.

Cheers for now
