We had a very interesting day today. We left camp at 07:45 and followed the H1-3 before turning down to check out the Nkaya Dam. Then we followed the S33 and S36 to Nhlangulela Picnic Site. Our return took us along the S36, S125 including the Nwaswitsontso loop then back onto the H1-3 reaching camp at 12:55.
We were delighted at what we saw when we arrived at Nkaya Dam. It was clearly the right time of day to be there as a variety of creatures were taking the waters. Our cameras did not stop clicking and choosing which to post in today’s report was quite challenging. Sometimes it’s the little things that give us the most pleasure. Of course it is thrilling to see the big five but watching animals and birds interacting at the waterhole is just priceless.
There was a lot of coming and going and plenty of greeting and mingling.
After enjoying our time at the waterhole we continued on and enjoyed the usual creatures but the next highlight was on the S36 just before Lugmag Dam.
We stopped for coffee at Nhlanguleni Picnic Site where there is a waterhole. Some impala were having a drink.
