My husband and I visited the park during our honeymoon. It was really great. We stayed at a gorgeous guest lodge, Blue Jay Lodge, just a few minutes away from one of the gates. We saw 4/5 of the big five. And many other favourites such as giraffes, zebras, warthogs.over 4 years ago
I’ve been to Kruger four times and have seen a wide variety of game, birds etc. But I never yet got to see a leopard or a cheetah.
Then on the last trip, somewhat south of Skukuza, one was encountered on the dirt road. It was a bit of a dull day but I had to get a photograph, yet the animal just kept walking along the road – away from the car – offering only a “rear end” photo opportunity.
Then when I was about to despair, the cheetah turned into the bush on my side of the car. I thought that was the end of the sighting, when the cheetah climed up on a large bolder, and with the sunlight at that very moment breaking throught the clouds and focusing on the beast, it turned towards the car – as if posing for a photo.
I’m returing to Kruger April 2008 and hope this time to capture a leopard with my lens.over 5 years ago
