When we were asked what we wanted to see, we thought lion and leopard was being greedy. Within hours we had met Pretty Girl, a lovely leopard mom who stayed with us for hours, walking through the dewy grass, leaping over streams, ..just being herself....More

Weather was great. No bugs at all. I was actually shocked. Took multiple brands of repellent and never touched any of them. Cool in the AM, but occasionally got very warm in the afternoon, but cool again by Sundowner time.
