Nedile Safari ♡

Our son has just come back from a fabulous short trip to Inyati at Sabi Sands.  His spectacular sightings included a leopard kill which he has featured on his instagram page

Check it out!


This reminded me that I have been a bit slack about posting the second batch of pics from our Welgevonden Safari trip at the beginning of the year.  We stayed at the awesomely situated Nedile Lodge.  This is a more traditional "bush lodge" with lovely comfy decor and great food.



The wildlife sightings were great too.  We had this incredible experience watching 2 young cheetah males hiding from their food (ie baby wildebeest who walked right past them).

Can you see them lying as flat as possible in the foreground?  The bush is a fascinating place.
We saw loads of rhino - often obstructing the road like here: 

It is always such a treat but I won't post "proper" pics of rhino with geographical locations as they are so endangered.  
We also saw lion, buffalo, gentle giraffe and waterbuck (with their distinctive markings).


 I also love the bush flora, scenery and beautiful African sky.  I took loads of pics as thunderstorms rolled in.

On our last day we were obnoxiously lucky to see a leopard (doing her morning yoga) behind this elephant.  Can you see her (in the distance behind the elephant's right tusk)?  These are just my dodgy iphone pics, my son has the proper camera and posts droolworthy images on instagram.

Nedile camp has a small water hole frequented by beautiful elephants.

It was such a great trip - memories to last a lifetime!
