We had the most knowledgable guide which made such a difference (Simon from Wild Wings Safaris), he knew the answer to the numerous questions we asked and everything about nature in general! He could spot animals that were totally hidden to the untrained eye and at unbelievable distances – he also walked barefoot the entire time, in restaurants, toilets or the bush; he was at one with nature! Easily the best guide we came across, we actually requested Simon based on other people’s suggestions and were lucky to get him.
My highlight was seeing a leopard with her 4 month old cub; she was totally relaxed with the vehicle and approached us a couple of times, getting within one metre of me! It was the most amazing experience, especially as we spent over 20 minutes with them as they interacted – the cub climbed trees and chased a butterfly, they were literally picture perfect! Another special moment was seeing two African Wild Dogs (which are pretty rare) being chased by a different pack of 14. There are only around 1000 left so we were especially lucky to see quite a large proportion!
