Arrived home on Sunday night the 11th August from a four day trip to Djuma lodge in the Sabi Sands. On return filled my November trip in a few days and am full for 8-11 November. This trip was fantastic in terms of sightings and the group that were with, among them being two doctors and there wives. We met on the 8th in Hoedspruit and all followed me through to the lodge. First game drive was out at 3.30 once everyone had unpacked, and the big 5 were seen in the first hour. Back to lodge for a braai and to bed. A full breakfast on each day followed the morning drive which left at 6am. Weather was overcast so not cold or hot. Sightings were the leopards, Hosanna, Thandi and Tingana, with the Nkhuma and Torchwood pride of lions with the Avoca males. We saw so many buffalos this trip with a great sighting of a herd of approx 150 zebras. Another strange sighting was a large bull hippo out of the water. Sunday morning all packed and hit the road for the return to home.
