It was an excellent night on the game drive at WildEarth. We saw several of the Mapogo although this is the only one that I could get a clear picture of.
After the Mapogo, there was a visit to a hippo at a waterhole.
Then came another delight! There has been for many months a female leopard and her 2 cubs in the Djuma area. We saw all three of them tonight, but only the young female cub was in a position to get her picture taken- Mom and bro were resting in the tall grass and were too hard to see to take a picture. Here she is:
She is quite beautiful, I think. Here she is resting about 20-30 feet above the ground, laying on a tree branch.
The rest of the weekend was a bit of a dud. I ended up having to come home early from my scrapbooking weekend and the weather is rotten and in general it was not terrific- but seeing both Mapogo and Karula and her cubs sure cheered me up!
Time to get to bed so I can do the morning drive tomorrow. Then I need to upload a bunch of snaps from WildEarth- I am way behind in posting them to my link.
Happy President's Day!
