So glad we booked a tour and didn't do it by our own.
John had kind of telescopic eyes! We could relax and enjoy scenery and he was looking arround and spotting animals every where.
Was nice because we saw the most difficult of the big 5 at Cape Vidal 2 days ago by our own! So lucky we were!
Before breakfast time we saw already at least 5 elephants, giraffe and buffaloes. Only 2 hours of tour and 3 of the big five already seen.
After coffee we went and found the white rino, just 30 min away...
John really want us to complete our big five and looked hard for the precious lions... was not the best weather, but he insisted, even driving more fare away as he use in this tour and there it is... 3 beautiful female lions sitting on the hill not too far from us... perfect day, perfect guide.
We stopped for a braai. (Delicious and included in price).
After this on our way back we saw more giraffes, buffalo and an elephant right on the road.
Was so grateful to see others with their own car far away of the elephant for prevention. But John know what he does and this animals perfectly, so we just aproxímate at only 2m of the big male elephant.
So glad we book a ranger and so glad it was john.
Thanks for this day.
