Then we headed off for 3 nights at the Private Big Cat Reserve to photograph their Lions, Leopards and Cheetahs. One night just as we headed off to our rooms after dinner we were interrupted by Ntombi chasing an Impala through the camp which she subsequently managed to catch outside room 10 !! We stood in amazement as she wrestled with her prey meters from us. Once it was over she began to feed on the Impala and was joined by Teneray the young Caracal. Unusual photos of a Caracal at one end of the Impala and a cheetah at the other end were captured. Ntombi was surprisingly tolerant of the intruder.
More excitement followed at Mala Mala where we spent our final 3 nights. We had a pair of Cheetah brothers to ourselves for an entire afternoon and got some great sunset shots of them. The following day started with a visit to the Wilddog Den, a mating pair of leopards, a 3 week old Leopard cub and a Lioness with 3 cubs !!
We also had great fun shooting the first WILD4 GO PRO Movie Trailer - what a great piece of equipment and what a great place to use it !!!
Many thanks to Jaco for another amazing guiding experience at the Big Cat Reserve and to Gary, our awesome Ranger at Mala Mala !!
Here are a few of the photos and the GO PRO Movie Trailer , hope you enjoy them !!
Kindest regards from the Wild4 Team !
